Kubu Island in Makgadikgadi Pans with South Africa Overland 4×4 Tours


Visit wild, untamed Botswana and experience real wilderness.

We leave the big city of Johannesburg behind and drive into Botswana. We start with a 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! Read about Botswana as one of our destinations here.
