DAY 01 Johannesburg to Kalahari Gateway
Leaving behind the city of Johannesburg, we travel through the North-West Province to the Botswana border.
DAY 02 Kalahari Gateway to Kalahari
After breakfast we venture deeper into the Central Kalahari and our camp in the Ghanzi district, here we will spend time getting to know the fascinating San people. After lunch we will join our San guides for a guided walk that will introduce us to the many secrets of their survival in the Kalahari Desert. The nomadic San are hunter-gatherers that have passed down a rich knowledge of the plants and animals that play such an important part in their lifestyle. This evening we will get a first-hand experience of the San culture, well known for its rich traditions of song, dance and story-telling.

DAY 07 Chobe National Park
We rise early this morning as we continue north to our camp on the banks of the Chobe River. This afternoon is set aside for exploring the Chobe National Park.

The afternoon ends with a leisurely boat cruise and a meal served around the campfire.
