Day 1:Gaborone
Arrive in Botswana and prepare for your adventure by relaxing for a night in Gaborone the Capital City of Botswana's top hotels. The evening will be spent at your leisure and includes an early dinner with your Guide to discuss your itinerary and answer questions you may have.
 
Day 2 and 3: Twee Rivieren Campsite
We depart Gaborone early morning as we head to the Kalahari via Lobatse, Sekoma (165km) and Tsabong Villages (285km). Situated on the extreme south- western corner of Botswana, the Park covers an impressive 32 991 km2. We set camp at Twee Rivieren campsite where we spend 2 nights exploring the windblown Kalahari Sand dunes and the pans. The park is a haven for gemsbok, springbok, hartebeest, eland, brown hyenas and jackals that occur in abundance and one can see the famous black- manned Kalahari lions. One of the most outstanding features of the park is the sociable weaver nest where thousands of birds nest together, each pair with a separate entrance. Black- breasted Snake Eagle is very abundant as is the Pale Chanting Goshawk.

Day 4 and 5: Setsatswe Campsite
After breakfast we break camp and head to a designated campsite at Setsatswe. On the way we pass through tall grass areas, dunes, ridges, and soft sand. The route links a myriad of pans, some of them shimmering white and spectacular. We set up camp and spend 2 nights game driving. There are plenty of animals with possibility to see an eland, gemsbok, ostrich, springbok and the lions.

Days 6: Tsabong
Participants will drive back to Tsabong where they will spend a night. Sand Dunes and camels are the main attractions in this area.

Best season
It will depend on what the participants would like to see and do, which will dictate the best time of the year to visit Botswana. The winter months (May to August) are good for game viewing where the summer months (September to April) offer spectacular scenery and also the best birdlife as the migratory birds return from up north (central Africa and Europe) to breed in their thousands, in specific places such as the Okavango Delta.
