Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Prepare to leave Thakadu at dawn as distances are considerable. We will journey 120km north to the Kuke veterinary cordon fence which forms the northern boundary of the Centeral Kalahari Game Reserve. Turning due East we enter the reserve at Tsau gate and continue on the South of the fence until we turn south towards Motopi waterhole on our way to Parssage valley. This route takes us through undulating dunes covered in Kalahari scrub and grass. Eland and lion are often seen. Camping for the first night will usually be in the Passarge valley which sometimes plays host to huge concentrations of antelope especially gemsbok, springbok and wildebeest. Cheetah prefer the valley bottoms as the provide ideal open hunting. The eerie solitude and vast night skies are unforgettable.

Day 2: Sees us gently meandering through many of the pans and ridges of the northern part of the Centeral Kalahari Game Reserve, including Deception valley and pan which were made famous by Mark and Delia Owen in the 1980’s in their book Cry of the Kalahari. We will either camp at Deception or carry on to the more exposed Pipers pan. Pipers pan has a waterhole and is noted for its Lions and fabulous bird life.

Day 3: We travel North through the North Eastern pans and exit at Motswiri gate. Exiting at Xade in the South is not currently an option as the gate has been closed for veterinary reasons. We travel back to Kuke on the Northern side of the Kuke cordon and on to hot showers and sundowners at Thakadu.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

The active partners, Chris Woolcott and Kingsley Butler recognized the need in the frontier town of Ghanzi for a lodge and campsite more in tune with the Kalahari and the budget traveler....
