North-west Kalahari & Panhandle

The Panhandle, first class bird watching.

Tsodilo Hills may seem remote and inaccessible…

…but they offer spectacular views from the top.

The region's nickname ‘the Louvre of the desert’.

...in the darkness you will see superb examples of stalagmites and stalactites as well as bats.

North-west Kalahari & Panhandle: Safaris

Safari holidays to the Okavango Panhandle

The choice of safari holidays to the North-West Kalahari is more limited than to other regions of Botswana. All of them are relatively long trips, lasting around two weeks each. Travellers who like to explore independently might consider the self-drive Cheetah safari or Red Lechwe safari, which take in Botswana and Namibia. These give you the chance to travel at your own pace and with great flexibility.
