Description

Map out a weekend to spare in Botswana's capital? This tour offers the best camping safari in Khutse Game Reserve which is an ideal offer to those who want a break from the city to refresh in a pristine quiet and wild environment. Because of its proximity, and relative accessibility, to the nation's capital, Khutse game Reserve is a favourite retreat for Gaborone visitors or residents.
