Itinerary
Open All
Day 1: Maun-Kalahari Plains Camp

Fly from Maun Airport by scheduled, light aircraft to Kalahari Plains Camp where you will stay for two nights in a tented room. Kalahari Plains Camp in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve overlooks an immense pan with endless horizons and beautiful skies. This eco-friendly camp is beautifully placed to take advantage of the famed, outstanding wildlife of this reserve. Settle into one of the eight en-suite canvas units with a unique rooftop sleep-out, built to take in the sweeping views. The camp’s staff will host you in the dining and lounge area or will provide you with a refreshing drink on the viewing deck or while you’re taking a dip in the plunge pool. Home to the legendary Kalahari black-maned lion, you can anticipate a magical stay in this enormous game-rich area.

Day 2: Kalahari Plains Camp

Wilderness Safari has actively engaged the local Basarwa (Bushman) people, integrating them into the potentially, mutually beneficial ecotourism industry. The camp is 100% solar powered. The concession is characterised by open grassy plains, seasonal pans, wooded acacia islands, scrub-covered dunes and fossil riverbeds. Game drives will unlock the wildlife treasures found here, while San (bushman) experiences provide insight into the unique culture of the local people. Check out Margot’s blog under Our Staff Blogs to read about her experience with the San bushmen.

During the wet and the dry season, wildlife varies. Invariably you will come across a vast array of plains game followed by their predators – lion, leopard, cheetah and brown hyena. Some 220 bird species have been recorded in the area.

Day 3: Kalahari Plains Camp-Maun

Depart camp at around noon and fly by scheduled circuit, light aircraft from the camp back to Maun Airport and join the Botswana Spectacular tour. The seven-day Botswana Spectacular tour departs early afternoon, making for an easy connection without much waiting between flights.
