9 Day Safari Tour of Botswana, including the Central Kalahari, Makgadikgadi Pans and Mystic Kubu Island

A 9 day safari tour of Botswana is perfect when time is in short supply but you just really need to “get away from it all” . This is the overland tour for you!

Visit wild, untamed Botswana and experience real wilderness. Check here to see our vehicles. Of course you are also welcome in your own 4×4 vehicle.

We leave the big city of Johannesburg behind and drive into Botswana. To start the adventure we first visit the special Khama rhino sanctuary. The camp site are nice with hot showers and of course African wild life. Now the wilderness really starts when we visit to the Central Kalahari Desert, where we have to be totally self sufficient. This is a truly wild place. After 2 nights of wilderness we have a little luxury at Planet Baobab. Nearby is the lovely Elephant sands worth a visit where elephants come from miles around to drink fresh water.

A very special place.

Lastly is a crazy 4×4 drive across the Makgadikgadi Pan, one of the biggest salt flats in the world. Makgadikgadi Pan is the last remnant of Lake Makgadikgadi which dried up several thousand years ago, but once covered an enormous part of Southern Africa.

Eventually, we will arrive on the mystical dry granite rock island known as Kubu Island It means Hippo in Tswana as the huge rocks look like hippos. It is a unique, untouched, wild and sacred place!
