Kalahari Plains Extension

Discover the Wildlife of the Kalahari Desert Amid Expansive Vistas Unrivaled on Earth
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve, covering 20,000 square miles, is the largest conservation area in Botswana and one of the biggest in the world. Healthy wildlife populations are present year-round thanks to the diverse habitats that exist in these generally arid environs. From November to April, the southern summer rains bring the desert to life with grassy plains and floral displays, while the rest of the year the Kalahari is a typical dry desert system. Home to the legendary Kalahari black-maned lion as well as the highest concentration of cheetah in southern Africa, the the Kalahari offers a remarkable safari experience. Guided game drives unveil a vast array of wildlife; some of the most commonly seen are gemsbok, springbok, wildebeest and red hartebeest, as well as their predators, including lion, cheetah, leopard, brown hyena and more.

Trip Highlights

  • Experience genuine wilderness on a bush immersion into one of the world's largest and most remote wildlife reserves
  • Look for healthy numbers of cheetah and the black-maned Kalahari lion in pursuit of hoofed game drawn to seasonal grass
  • From our isolated luxury desert camp, enjoy 4x4 wildlife drives by day and some of the darkest, starriest skies on the planet at night
