TRAVEL TO THE CENTRAL KALAHARI
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana is the largest, most remotely situated reserve in Southern Africa, and the second largest wildlife reserve in the world, covering 52 800 square kilometres. Endlessly stretching plains of waist-high golden grass are scattered with trees and scrub bushes. Wide, empty pans appear on vast white landscapes of levelled earth, meeting the startlingly blue sky above.
The reserve has one of the most unique bio-diversities in southern Africa, including concentrated populations of threatened species of animals such as the brown hyena, and is home to the black-maned lion. During and shortly after good summer rains, the grasslands in the north teem with wildlife which gathers in the best grazing regions. These include large herds of springbok and oryx, wildebeest, eland and giraffe.
This is a place where the Basarwa (San) people have lived and survived in a harsh environment for thousands of years using their primitive bow and poisoned arrows hunting skills to survive.
