This safari starts in Maun on the 23rd April 2020, when we meet you at Maun Airport at 12.15pm and take you to Nxai Pan National Park, a drive of 4 hours. We will have an afternoon game drive before a sundowner somewhere scenic, and return to our camp at dusk for drinks and snacks around the fire before a delicious dinner.
24th and 25th April we will have early starts and extensive game drives depending on game movements and if the natural waterholes have water. If they do then there will be hundreds of Zebra at Nxai Pan, the local Lions favourite diet!! Also a great area for Cheetah.
We will visit the famous Baines Baobabs one day.
On the 26th April after a last early game drive here we will move camp to Makgadikgadi Pans NP to an exclusive site near Khumaga. We do not know if the Boteti River will be flowing or not, but this area will have Elephant Bulls and Zebra and if lucky we will see the local Lions that often vocalise loudly at night.
On the 29th April after a last early morning game drive we move, crossing the Boteti River by ferry if the river is flowing or going the long way around, to Rakops Village. Here we purchase ice and diesel before driving 1 1/2 hrs to Matswere Gate where we fill our water and enter the CKGR (Central Kalahari Game Reserve) We then drive another 2 hours to our exclusive site at Deception Valley where our camp is set up for 3 nights. Depending on game movements, we will explore from Letiahau to Sunday Pan.
We return to Maun on the 2nd May 2020.
