Video of Central Kalahari Game Reserve
Central Kalahari Game ReserveThe Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the ultimate in 'remote' safari destinations. It covers over 50,000km², most of which is inaccessible. It was, until very recently, closed to the public, although there have always been small groups of Bushmen living in the reserve. Even now, this region is seen by only a handful of visitors every year.
The best-known account of the area was the haunting book, Cry of the Kalahari, written by American biologists Mark and Delia Owens about their research in Deception Valley.
Safaris to the Central Kalahari Game ReserveThere are two relatively new private camps inside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. These are the only two permanent accommodation options inside the park:
