  • The Khama Rhino Sanctuary (KRS) is a community-based wildlife project, established in 1992 to assist in saving the vanishing rhinoceros, restore an area formerly teeming with wildlife to its previous natural state and provide economic benefits to the local Botswana community through tourism and the sustainable use of natural resources. Covering approximately 8585 hectares of Kalahari Sandveld, the sanctuary provides prime habitat for white and black rhino as well as over 30 other animal species and more than 230 species of birds. 

  • Lekhubu Island is a rock outcrop which was submerged in the waters of the great Lake Makgadigkadi which was one of the largest lakes in Africa. Kubu is a Setswana name for hippopotamus, while Lekhubu means a rock outcrop. About 10,000 years ago the Lake Makgadikgadi dried up and Lekhubu was left, an island surrounded by miles and miles of white salt. Research indicates that climatic changes and earth movements over thousands and thousands of years caused this dramatic change to take place. Low rock walls on the southern side of Lekhubu Island date back to the great Zimbabwean empire.

  • Central Kalahari Game Reserve encompasses 52 000 square kilometres. The region of vast open plains, salt pans and ancient riverbeds is home to large herds of springbok, gemsbok. Made famous by Mark and Delia Owen in the book Cry of the Kalahari, you will spend 2 nights at Deception Valley and accommodation is tented camping. During your stay here, you will track the black manned lion of the Kalahari. African wild dogs, cheetahs, brown hyenas can also be found following their prey in this untamed wilderness. The black manned lion of the Kalahari has a dominant colour its adaptation is very high and therefore it can survive in harsh conditions.

  • The reserve has a variety of geological formations formed by changing climate over thousands of years. The Okwa River, now dry once fed the lake Makgadikgadi. Today this ancient fossil river forms a huge and beautiful valley in the southern part of the reserve, the open grasslands that spring of life with the coming of the rains support the abundant game.

  • Deception Valley is the reserve’s most famous location. This is a long, broad inter-dune valley running roughly north-south; it's thought to be the bed of a fossil river. During and after good rains this is carpeted in luscious green grass that attracts dense concentrations of game.
