Tour 21: Kgalagadi-Mabuasehube Camping Wilderness Trail-Botswana


This tour is a combination of the Kgalagadi riverbeds and dunes. Most of the time we will have enough water just to have a small shower under an Acacia tree. Only Nossob is a fenced camp, the other camps are in the middle of nowhere, with very few other tourists to be seen.

DAY 2 – Nossob

DAY 4 and 5 – Mabuasehube game reserve

Early morning departure to this unspoilt part of the Kalahari. IMPORTANT: This is also an unfenced camp. The magic of these camps are the fact that we are very close to the magic of the Kalahari, making you feel much closer to nature.

We spend our time doing several game drives. This is prime predator area, and if we are lucky we might see the big cats, or if we are really lucky the big cats will visit us. Again your guide will handle the situation, as we have been doing these tours for many years. Every morning we do a walk to inspect the animal tracks around our camp. Many times the Leopard visits us, most of the time the only evidence will be his tracks in the Kalahari sand.

Overnight: Mabuasehube camping – unfenced – water available – 100km

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and dinner
