What you'll love about the Kalahari Safari tour

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park has a rich and diverse wildlife population, featuring remarkable animals such as bat-ear foxes, gemsbok, brown hyenas, and endearing meerkats. The park’s biggest attraction is its predators, with a total of 19 species, including cheetahs, elusive leopards, and the iconic black-maned Kalahari lions. The region is home to 40 raptor and vulture species making it a prime birding location.

The Kgalagadi is famous for its sightings of lions sleeping in the road, cheetahs chasing down springboks, and jackals skillfully snaring birds at the waterholes.

Our week-long stay in the park gives you the chance to potentially witness these remarkable sightings for yourself.


The Kalahari Safari is a captivating journey that combines adventure, culture and nature experiences. Interactions with the Khomani San people provide insights into traditional life and survival techniques, while a visit to the only Camel Farm in South Africa allows for the rare experience of tasting camel milk. Nighttime scorpion hunts unveil the desert’s nocturnal wonders, and the diverse, ever-changing landscapes, featuring vast dunes and salt pans, create a photographer’s paradise. 

Limiting the tour to just 5 vehicles maintains an intimate yet social atmosphere, fostering authentic connections among travelers.

We carefully balance engaging activities with free time, providing you with the best of both worlds and ensuring a truly memorable and enriching travel experience.
