Central Kalahari Game Reserve
Food in Central Kalahari is not as plenty as in the Okavango, Chobe and Kalahari Basin’s northern stretch so, you have to be fit, you have to be fast, you have to be agile, you have to be sharp and alert all the time and above all, you have to be adaptive. Otherwise, the Kalahari will be unforgiving.
Wait until you see a Kalahari Black-Maned Lion and lionesses in male size. One of our friends living in Great Kruger Area has once said: “If you somehow relocate these lions to Kruger, or to any other reserve where food is plenty, nothing will escape the claws of Kalahari Lions…”
Cheetahs do not come in single, but in a coalition. Leopards are always there, but choose to be elusive during daytime. Caracals, African Wild Cats, other small size cats, Honey Badgers, Porcupines, Mongooses, Meerkats are common highlights of both nature reserves. If we are lucky, we'll come across an Aardwolf and Aardvark.
The level of cuteness is tested here with Bat-Eared Foxes and Cape Foxes and when the time is right, with their fluffy pups.
Have you ever seen a Brown Hyena?. They are shy unlike their spotted cousins, but there are great chances of spotting and photographing one.
