Fly-in Classic Ancient Culture Encounter

The Kalahari is a place of legend and is often misunderstood, but this Cultural Safari Package offers the opportunity to gain an unprecedented understanding of this fascinating region through the eyes of the original people of the area, the Bushmen.

This Botswana safari features one of the most romantic bush camps in Africa and is ideal for couples and those who would like to go on an expedition. Set on the edge of the Makgadikgadi, the largest salt pans on earth, the camp is perfectly situated to provide an unforgettable Botswana holiday experience where silence becomes your friend and space your protector.

Walks with the Bushmen will reveal ideals that make materialism seem so unnecessary and wasteful, while the game drives showcase some of the Makgadikgadi's unique wildlife such as the rarely seen Brown Hyena.
