Is This Trip for Me?

The six-day journey combines two nights at Camp Kalahari with two nights fly camping in the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and your last night back at Camp Kalahari. You’ll explore this vast and mysterious area on horseback, just as the earliest explorers, hunters and missionaries did. There’s also the chance to get up close and personal with the habituated meerkats of the Makgadikgadi, meet the Bushmen who call the desert their home, and search for rare and elusive desert-adapted species.
