Central Kalahari Game Reserve
Adventurous travellers seeking a truly remote African safari will be thrilled to discover it in central Botswana. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the second-largest game reserve in the world and one of the least visited. Yet, nothing can prepare you for the sheer wonder of exploring this vast reserve with its wild, untouched beauty. Sand veld and acacia trees dominate the landscape, and Kalahari apple-leaf, interspersed with grasslands and dotted with occasional dunes, pans and fossil river valleys.
While the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is home to an impressive variety of wildlife, there is one animal that is rather obviously absent, the human being. This lack of human traffic, combined with the park’s lack of infrastructure, makes for a challenging and marvellously authentic African experience. Of course, visitors need to be entirely self-sufficient, but those willing to make an effort will be rewarded.
