Tour J: Kalahari Camping Tours 3 Days 2 Nights

DAY 1

Rooiputs camping only

Depart 8h30 from your guesthouse to Rooiputs camping grounds in the Botswana side of Kgalagadi (300km)

IMPORTANT: This is an unfenced camp, with no water to shower, and long-drop toilets. Animals can walk freely between our tents and we might be visited by lions, leopard, heyena and jackals. We put up camp after arrival, have lunch and after a short rest we do a game drive north. Dinner under the stars. We might have a lion as dinner guest, but this is not a problem as you have an experienced guide to handle the situation. Should you need to visit the toilet during the night your guide will accompany you.

Overnight: Rooiputs camp – unfenced

DAY 2

Rooiputs camping only

Wake up at first light and have a coffee around the campfire. Today your guide will take you on a morning walk to see from the animal tracks what has happended during the night. Many times the predator tracks will be around your tent, and we will show you which animal it was, male or female. Please note animals are not dangerous when we obey some basic rules. We explore the area on foot, learning from your guide different plant- and insect species, even the tracks of scorpions can be seen and explained by your guide. We do several game drives – according to temperature (animals are active during the cooler times of the day) We can drive to Twee Rivieren if you need to take a shower.

Overnight: Rooiputs camp – unfenced
