Kalahari Plains Game Viewing and Activities

This part of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve offers year round viewing of desert-adapted wildlife. Wildlife sightings can include the sensational black-maned Kalahari lion, as well as one of the highest concentrations of cheetah in southern Africa! Small predators include meerkats (suricates), Cape fox, honey badger, black-backed jackal and several mongoose species. General herbivores species easily seen are gemsbok (oryx), springbok, red hartebeest, grey duiker and steenbok. During the summer months (end-November to April), the rains at this time of year ensure that the desert springs to life. Rather than game dispersing, these rains cause sprouting of short, palatable grasses on the pans systems and the fossil riverbeds such as Deception Valley. As a result plains game such as springbok; gemsbok and blue wildebeest concentrate in these areas and attract predators such as lion and cheetah. In the dry winter months game viewing remains productive as the herbivores move into the vegetated dunes and isolated pan systems surrounding the valleys. Kalahari Plains is located on one such pan and sightings of characteristic species remain good throughout the year. Activities at Kalahari Plains Camp include twice daily game drives in open 4x4 vehicles; guided nature walks accompanied by a local Basarwa (Bushman) tracker are also offered and concentrate on smaller desert ecology as well as cultural and traditional elements.
