We are proud to present our partnership package with San at Dqae Qare San Lodge. We have called this the Eland Package in honour of the San who have always revered this great antelope wherever they were found in Southern Africa, and we have over 100 on the farm. This adventure is all inclusive. We will collect you from Maun in a custom safari Cruiser and transport you to Dqae Qare San Lodge, number one on Trip Advisor and three times recipient of the Certificate of Excellence. Meet these amazing people on their own land and experience a culture as gentle and open as you will find anywhere on this planet. You will camp for two nights at a remote site on the game farm along with a group of San who stay in their traditional village. The intervening day will be a full immersion in San culture in our full Bushman Experience. Check out the programme here. They will guide you into the bush to learn the old ways including rope making, trap-setting, tracking, extensive bushwalks, craft making, entertainment dancing, storytelling and the life-altering traditional healing dance around an enormous fire at night. The Naro San
will leave you breathless in their knowledge and skill and their incredible connection with this desert where they have lived for over thirty thousand years. There are also opportunities to visit the Kuru Art Project to view the artists at work and purchase their artworks as an optional extra. From Dqae Qare we set off on safari to CKGR for three nights with a San tracker on our team. Experience their remarkable ability to spot game besides their thoroughly charming company. Add more nights in the park for a fee we can negotiate if you prefer. From CKGR we return to Dqae Qare for a final night in en suite rooms at the lodge with three course dinner and full English breakfast prepared by your San hosts. On the final morning we will transfer you back to Maun.

CKGR is a remote destination yet we have managed to keep our daily rate on a par with
most offers to Moremi from Maun, a fraction of the distance. Crucially we also don’t fix dates and then fill a sixteen-seater open Cruiser with loads of people who don’t even know each other. All our safaris are private and exclusive. The costs per person also come down if there are more guests as some of our costs like transport are fixed. Of course, we are also open to your suggestions and can customise your trip, both to CKGR or anywhere else in Botswana and Namibia at a great daily rate. All our safaris include at least one San tracker. The experience of bringing one or two of our San friends along really is unique, their capability in spotting game is legendary and they are wonderful people to have along.
