Going Slowly into the Kgalagadi

The Kgalagadi is a place of raw, unrefined beauty and one of the last arid frontiers. It is the most arid and least populated part of South Africa with almost unfathomable amounts of wide-open spaces filled with nothing but animals, birds and silence as far as the eye can see.

It’s a place where game-viewing, waterhole-watching and relaxing around a campfire take precedence. Travellers visit from all corners of the globe in search of the famous black-maned Kalahari lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyenas and often they find them, but there’s a lot more.

Gnarled camel thorn trees, red sands, golden grasslands, and deep blue skies provide a bold backdrop for photographs and game viewing. Among the huge diversity of wildlife, this vast conservation area is home to the stately gemsbok, with their “V-shaped” horns, the extensive nests of sociable weavers, quaint meerkats with their own sunshades and many birds of prey.

I have been coming to this area since my youth and would love to share it with you.

“We all really wound down from the normal pace of life. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed. The peace was deafening, and the stars were mesmerising. For the wife and me, sitting and reading and talking was fantastic, whilst the kids played in the reservoir. The nature is what I remember best though, so different from anything I’ve experienced before. With the help of Jim’s expertise, being able to spot both animals and birds that we would never have noticed on our own. Oh, and the chats next to the campfire! Thanks for a wonderful holiday Jim, we really appreciate your efforts” – Erik & Jen, Sweden.
