Welcome to the A team! On this tour we will access through the brutal sands of Xade gate in the south, passing the controversial settlement of New Xade. If you interested, we may even drop into the eccentric chief! Onward through the bull herds of our new resident Elephant and, if you give us enough notice to secure the campsite, Pipers Pans to meet the magnificent Pipers lions. Two nights at Pipers ideally then up north to the great Deception valley. Game drives through Sundays Pan and, again depending on availability, a night on the beautiful yellow grasses of Passarge valley. Perhaps we can spend the final night at the Matopi pan giving us the best chance ever of spending time with Panthera leo, having traversed five different lion territories! Five nights is the adventurer’s quest, the badge of honour, and a thorough immersion in this wilderness with all her myriad wild creatures, the birds, the plants, the cosmos and the campfire stories. If you have the time and your budget allows, we will be every bit as excited as you are to set off on this classic Kalahari adventure.

CKGR is a remote destination yet we have managed to keep our daily rate on a par withmost 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 Sanfriends along really is unique, their capability in spotting game is legendary and they are wonderful people to have along.  Lastly, we are based near Ghanzi in western Botswana where you will need to stay the first and last night unless you arrange a Maun pick-up. We recommend our base camp at the San owned game farm, Dqae Qare San Lodge.
