Day 1: Central Kalahari – Passarge Valley Drive Maun - Passarge (270 km, full day drive)
Your guide will meet you at your guesthouse after breakfast for an early departure to the Central Kalahari. Arrive at Matswere Gate, where we enter the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. We make our way to the Passarge Valley (all these valleys are old fossil river beds now, with clusters of trees and grass). Passarge Valley is set in the north west of CKGR and was closed until 10yrs ago to the public, the valley smaller than Deception Valley gets its name from a Swedish Botanist called Passarge. The area is remote and not visited frequently but has good game concentrations if rains fell. In this area Suricate or Meerkat can be found over and above the other Kalahari game species. Chances of seeing giraffe and cheetah are also very good. Enjoy the first evening and dinner under the African sky and around the campfire.
