The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the second largest in the world. At 52,800 square kilometres, it is almost half the size of England but unlike England, The Kalahari Game Reserve is wild, remote and mysterious in the extreme. The vast and flat expanse of scrub covered fossil dunes lie between ancient river valleys giving way to a fascinating spectrum of very different plants and animals. Nothing compares with the night stars here – their brilliance is simply awe-inspiring. During the rainy season and immediately afterwards (November to April) the area comes to life and is teeming with wildlife all gathering to enjoy the vast tracts of grazing areas. The large herds of springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest, hartebeest, eland, giraffe and zebra attract enormous prides of lion. As well as the mammoth size and scale of this outstanding area, it makes for a fantastic and contrasting experience to the lush beauty of the Okavango and an opportunity to learn about the ancient culture and history of the San or bushmen.
