Summary

Nothing prepares you for the immensity of this reserve, nor its wild, mysterious beauty. There is the immediate impression of unending space, and having the entire reserve to yourself. At night the stars utterly dominate the land; their brilliance and immediacy are totally arresting. CKGR is unique in that it was originally established in 1961 with the intention of serving as a place of sanctuary for the San, in the heart of the Kalahari. To this date, it still feels untouched!

Day-by-day Description

Day 1Welcome to the Kalahari

Activities Included

Camping Game drive Bird Watching Scenic Drive Evening Drives Morning Drives

We will depart from Maun at 0700hrs and head to CKGR to set camp in the Deception valley. We should reach CKGR in 2 hours. During and shortly after good summer rains (September to January), the flat grasslands of the reserve’s northern reaches teem with wildlife, which gather at the best grazing areas. These include springbok and gemsbok, as well as wildebeest, hartebeest, eland and giraffe. At other times of the year, when the animals are more sparsely distributed, the experience of travelling through truly untouched wilderness, of seemingly unending dimensions, is amazing. We will arrive at camp to have lunch and enjoy an afternoon siesta. We will head out for an evening game drive & sunset within the Deception Valley. Upon return to the camp, you will be treated to a hot camp shower before proceeding to dinner around a campfire. You will then retreat to your 3.2 x 3.2m tent equipped with a stretcher bed, a veranda and an attached bathroom with flush-able toilet, shower and sink.

Rise and shine and say hello to a fresh morning over coffee/tea and rusks for a 0630hrs morning game drive to Sunday Pan waterhole, and have brunch at Passarge Valley. Under the dense umbrella thorn Acacia tortillis thickets cheetah and lion rest up in the mid-day heat. CKGR boasts an amazing variety of birds, believe: Secretary bird, Kori Bustard and Ostrich are the most prominent of the species to be spotted, with good chances of seeing Lapped-faced Vulture and White-backed Vulture too. We will continue to explore this amazing landscape in search of its beauties. Our final leg of the morning drive will take us back through Leopard Pan to arrive at camp for lunch and enjoy an afternoon siesta. After a well deserved rest we will depart for an evening game drive to Deception Pan where we will enjoy a great sunset. Once the sun goes down we will head back to camp.

Day 3Final Leg: Say Goodbye to the Kalahari

Final Leg: Say Goodbye to the Kalahari Rise and shine and say hello to a fresh early morning over coffee/tea and rusks! We will head out for a game drive at the crack of dawn with the hopes of spotting cheetah, a resident pride of lion and several leopard whose territories include parts of the pan. We will head back to camp around mid morning to enjoy warm shower before a scrumptious breakfast. Once we have had breakfast we will embark on our vehicle for a leisurely drive back to Maun. The reserve might have little farewell surprises as we drive back “home” so keep those cameras ready to capture the last memories of the Kalahari. We will enjoy the leisurely drive as we continue our learning about this reserve and its beauties, mostly very unique. We anticipate to arrive in Maun mid afternoon, depending on what we spot along the way. You will be transported to your hotel or start another tour to either Moremi Game Reserve or Okavango delta, both highly recommended destinations to augment the Kalahari experience.
