Kalahari Safaris

Kalahari Safaris offer you the Kalahari experience of a lifetime. The Kalahari is a magical place and not at all what it seems. There is a large number of nocturnal creature beneath the surface. These nocturnal animals are discovered during your visit in the Kalahari.

This semi-desert region is well known for its red sand dunes. These dunes form part of a unique biosphere. This vast area is perfect for the expedition style mobile safaris that we offer.

If you are a first time visitor to the Kalahari, we do recommend that you don’t consider crossing the dune belts unassisted. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is readily available with standard sedan motors. The park has well-maintained gravel roads that have corrugated after season visitors. It is easy to get around in the park, and the main roads are well sign posted. You receive a map when entering the park and the directions are clear and informative. It is advised to select your accommodation or camp well in advance to ensure availability.

The Kalahari crossing refers to crossing the transfrontier park. Our Kalahari Safaris offer a combination of these areas all in one safari trip. We have combined a visit to Kgalagadi and  Mabuasehube and central Kalahari. You will require an average level of 4 x 4 experience and a sense of adventure when partaking on this trail. It is not recommended to travel and cross the Kalahari with only one vehicle. This part of the Kalahari is remote. It is strongly advised to undertake the right preparations before embarking on the Kalahari adventure of a lifetime.

The Kalahari has endless horizons and spectacular sunsets. Travelling over this vast semi-desert adds a sense of expedition to your visit. We offer a guided safari or guided self-drive trail through this remote part of the Kalahari. Our camps are unfenced and with equipped with the bare essentials. The unfenced fields allow us to experience the Kalahari on a ground level. Few things beat the Kalahari noise and an open fire.

The region is known for soaring temperature in summer and cold winter nights. It is always good to prepare for the seasons, before travelling to the Kalahari. The yearly rain clouds often struggle to penetrate the high-pressure system. The raining season results in high temperatures and allows for dramatic cloud formations and backdrops. You are welcome to join us on a Kalahari experience, rather than a Kalahari tour. We have a dedicated passion for the Kgalagadi and all its inhabitants.

You can select a variety of Kalahari safaris according to your sense of adventure, budget and interest. Our safaris are flexible, and you can book your private Kalahari experience.
