An optional night safari can be done from Polentswa. Your guide overnight at the camping grounds within easy call, ready to take you on game drives in our Prado.

SAFARI DAY 6

After our breakfast we do a game drive North in the dry Nossob riverbed. Kgalagadi boasts 264 bird species, of which 40 are Raptors. The birds are there for a specific reason – why is the Cape Vulture sitting in the Acacia tree? Is it waiting for Lions to finish their meal, or is it just keeping its babies protected from the harsh Kalahari sun? After lunch at the lodge we depart to Twee Rivieren, then Upington 260km. Tour ends at Le Must 5 star guesthouse. We will transfer you to the restaurant and safely back.
