Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Johannesburg – Maun

Arrive at Johannesburg airport early in the morning in time to take your connecting flight to Maun. Your ranger will meet you at Maun International Airport.

We depart towards the Central Kalahari Game Reserve where we set up our first night’s camp close to the banks of the dry Boteti River. Enjoy the first evening under the African sky and around the campfire.

Overnight: Boteti River

Day 2

Central Kalahari Game Reserve

After breakfast we leave the Boteti and soon arrive at Matswere Gate, where we enter the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. We make our way to the Passarge Valley (all these valleys are old fossil river beds now, with clusters of trees and grass). Passarge Valley is set in the north west of CKGR and was closed until 10yrs ago to the public, this valley smaller than Deception Valley, gets its name from a Swedish Botanist called Passarge. The area is remote and not visited frequently but has good game concentrations if rains fell. In this area Surricate or Meerkat can be found over and above the other Kalahari game species. Chances of seeing giraffe and cheetah are also very good.
