Activities

Game drives in 4×4 open vehicles and nature walks with the San Bushmen. Horse riding and quad bike safaris to Kubu Island, with overnight stay in a fly-camp.

Wildlife

Meerkat colonies and brown hyenas, one of the most rare African carnivores. Herds of zebras and wildebeests during the annual migration. Flamingos and other migratory birds during the rainy season.

Why

The story of the camp and of the Bousfield family, five generations of safaris in Africa. The salty expanses of the Makgadikgadi Pans, an experience at the end of world. The rituals and traditions of the San Bushmen. The fauna of the desert: interacting with the meerkats and encountering the brown hyena. The legendary Chapman’s Baobab.
