Central Kalahari Game Reserve
Making up almost 10% of Botswana’s total surface area at 52 800 square km, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the second largest game reserve in the world, after Tanzania’s Selous. It is a vast, semi-arid tract of the Kalahari, which morphs into a rolling grassland during the rainy summer months, and is home to special desert-adapted species, such as the bat-eared fox, brown hyena, meerkat, and most famously, the black-maned lion.Enquire Now
