Our two nights are spent camping near the Khumaga area.
DAY 3 & 4: CENTRAL KALAHARI GAME RESERVE
We continue to our campsite in Deception Valley, via Tsoe and Rakops. The Valley is an ancient riverbed meandering between wooded dunes across the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The riverbed supports a great diversity of fauna and flora and we explore this fragile ecosystem along a great length of its course.
of oryx are feeding along the way. We could also encounter lion, leopard,
brown hyena, giraffe, wildebeest, hartebeest, jackal, bat-eared fox and
various other species. Not really the quantity but rather the environment
in which they are found is so intriguing. Raptors such as blackshouldered
kites, kestrels and eagles abound while marsh owls are often seen after
the rains. Many topics are discussed around the fire at night and
comradeship forms an integral part of this unique experience.
