Areas in Botswana
The majority of Botswana is ruled by the extreme conditions of the Kalahari Desert. These vast and arid spaces nonetheless have abundant wildlife. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve are famous for their big cats. Southern and Central Botswana also allow experienced and self-reliant travellers to discover true wilderness. The Kalahari is a challenge to your survival- and 4×4 driving skills as you leave all amenities far behind.
