Safari game drive in Makgadikgadi

Explore the ancient Makgadikgadi Pans and encounter black-maned lions

The essence of the Safari game drive

Game drives in the Makgadikgadi Pans are unparalleled, featuring wild open plains that are stark and hypnotic, the closest thing on the earth to the rugged surface of the moon. Encounter especially adapted wildlife as they expertly navigate through the arid desert in search of food and moisture in this seemingly hostile environment. Day trips pass herds of springbok, gemsbok, and red hartebeest, while night drives brush by packs of the edgy brown hyena, bat eared foxes and the elusive black-maned Kalahari lion. Open 4×4 drives perfectly illustrate the mesmerising appeal and pull of the desert.
