Botswana Kalahari Desert



Botswana Kalahari Desert

The Kalahari Game Reserve, Central Botswana, is the largest sand basin in the world. Although called a desert, the Kalahari is covered with a wide variety of habitats and is home of the San bushmen and the Big-5 animals. On this private luxury tour experience three of Botswana’s most noted landscapes and safari experiences—water, land and desert. These are Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve and Kalahari Desert. 

Botswana is literally an oasis in the desert – the desert being the Kalahari, cut into jigsaw shapes by the tributaries that vitalize the Okavango Delta. And where there is water there is life, lush and green and teeming with animals and birds. This safari destination is recommended only for those who are well-organized self-sufficient groups of adventurers who can confront the remoteness, wilderness, harsh terrain and unforgiving climate. 

And, experience the renowned Mombo Camp on the delta’s Chief’s Island.

When to go Botswana’s winter is during our British summer, and the weather is hot during the day, but it isn't a stifling heat, and cold at night.

The summer months (British winter) can be hot and humid and there is a chance of rain. Botswana has one rainy season which runs between mid-December and runs through to mid-March.

Visa All visitors to Botswana need a valid passport for at least six months, but no visas are required by citizens of most Commonwealth countries, EU countries, USA and other selected countries. A valid return ticket is required. On arrival you’ll get a 30-day entrance stamp.
