Any wildlife safari should include the Kalahari, Botswana safari or Namibia safari.
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a 3.7 million Ha Park, situated in the Kalahari Desert and home to the black-mane Kalahari lion. Here you can be pampered in a stylish 5-star lodge, or enjoy the budget option, while soaking up the sunshine and spectacular red sand dune views.
Our wildlife safari is more than just wildlife and game drives. We guarantee a rich and hands-on experience of all the big and small, flying and non-flying animals, birds, insects and plants these areas have to offer. Activities include Bushman-guided nature walks, game drives and night game drives, 4x4 trails in the sand dunes, and much more.
The Kalahari and Namib deserts form the ideal setting, with flowing red sand dunes and spectacular sunsets. The deserts and semi-deserts are rich in life, with concentrations around the water sources.
Every wildlife safari is accompanied by a graduate Zoologist and THETA guide
A Botswana safari can include the Okavango Delta, Moremi National Park and Savute within Chobe National Park.
Northern Botswana is home to more than 70 000 elephants and only 1.7 million humans, a well-balanced ecosystem of predators and prey species, rich variety of bird species, among other.
Each wildlife safari would consist of either fly-in 5-star lodge options, or a 4x4 option, with camping in the wilderness. Activities may include guided nature walks, 4x4 trails, mokoro trips in the Delta channels, game drives and night game drives on open vehicles, as well as helicopter and Cessna flips over the Delta.
The Okavango Delta is in flood from May or June until September every year. This leads to a whole network of water channels and islands, concentrating wildlife on the limited dry areas.
The Northern Cape is the biggest of the nine provinces in South Africa, covering almost a third of the total surface area of the country, with a population of less than a million people. The wide open spaces, at least 5 national parks with easy access, beautiful red sand dunes, two of the largest rivers in SA, carpets of Spring flowers in Namaqualand, Rich diamond history around Kimberley and along the West Coast, a wealth of plants and wildlife.
These are just some of the reasons why the Northern Cape deserves to be at the top of every traveller’s list. Imagine exploring the “desert”, with white water rafting on the largest river in SA, game drives and bushman-guided nature walks in the first and biggest transfrontier park in Southern Africa – Kgalagadi, sand surfing on white sand dunes, a visit to one of the six biggest waterfalls in the world. Augrabies, wine tasting at the second biggest cooperative wine cellar in the world, dinners under the BIG starry skies of the Northern Cape Province!
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park
The Kalahari desert is one of the oldest deserts in the world, with a wealth of desert-adapted creatures inhabiting the dunes and plains covered in Bushman grass and Camelthorn trees. From the majestic black-mane Kalahari lion, leopard, cheetah; to big herds of Wildebeest, Springbok and Oryx; Africa’s biggest eagles and vultures, to flocks of sociable weavers sharing a metric ton nest with the smallest of the falcons – the pygmy falcon.
Kgalagadi covers an area almost twice the size of Kruger Park, 3.7 million hectares of unspoilt wilderness. Accommodation varies from en-suite chalets in the traditional fenced rest camps, secluded bush camps (unfenced), to camping. With daily flights to Upington, from Johannesburg and Cape Town, or transfers from any city in SA, it has never been this easy to visit the Kalahari region.
