TOUR 6: Mabuasehube Kalahari-Safari

This route leads us into a remote area of the Kalahari Desert. You will be one of only a few visitors who will get the chance to see this unique and very beautiful wildlife reserve. The Mabuasehube Game Reserve is next to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park. There are no fences between the parks. The game can migrate freely along the natural trails. This means that large quantities of game can be found in this area. Due to the presence of abundant prey, the predators are not too far. Lions, cheetahs, leopards, spotted and brown hyenas, lynx and wildcats.

These programs are only for those people who are really brave at heart!
Those not minding to sacrifice everyday luxuries, willing to survive with only one glass of water for brushing teeth and getting a shower only now and then! It is for those who enjoy the remoteness and seclusion in the wild and have a challenging outlook on life. You will sometimes not even have a long drop toilet, meaning having to use a spade and go behind the bush if nature calls. There are no fences around any camp on these tours. Nothing to worry about, as you'll have a well-experienced tour guide who can handle the situation.
