9 Day Tour – Botswana. Kalahari and Kubu
9 Day Tour Botswana Kalahari and Kubu
If time is of the essence you can do a 9 day tour Botswana Kalahari and Kubu. From Johannesburg we drive into Botswana. Here we visit one of the last places where you can still find rhinos wondering around. Please click here to see when we are doing this trip again. Of course you can also choose your own dates.
Then it is on to the huge Central Kalahari Nature Reserve. This is one of the biggest National game parks in the world. The Kalahari is bigger than Lesotho and Swaziland combined. However you may be one of 100 people there so it is rather remote. Also as it is a semi desert we have to be completely self sufficient. This is just how we like it.
Even though it is a semi desert you will be amazed at how many animals make this stunning place their home.
So after a few days in this wilderness we stay at a funky place full of huge Baobab trees. Here we can have a spot of luxury. There are lovely little chalets available and if you are tired of my bush cooking there is also a restaurant.
Weather permitting we have a crazy and tough adventure driving across the unbelievable Makgadikgadi pans. This is where we visit the mystical Kubu Island. I know this place will change your outlook on life.
If there is time we also pay a visit to see more elephants than anywhere else in Botswana. Maybe even more than at Chobe. This trip is adventure-filled with awesome game sightings, amazing bird life and beautiful scenery but is in very remote parts of Botswana where we only camp. The camping is in big canvas dome tents and we do have fridges in our Landys so not all is lost. However we really need to be completely self sufficient and have a sense of adventure.
