Deception Valley Lodge, Central Kalahari Game Reserve

At Maun International Airport you will be met and transferred by road to Deception Valley Lodge in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The lodge is an oasis within arid terrain, yet teeming with wildlife. You will have the rare opportunity to be guided by the San Bushmen, one of the oldest cultures in the continent, who will give you an insight into their culture, hunting and survival skills in one of the most inhospitable environments on the earth.

Deception Valley Trails Camp, Central Kalahari Game Reserve

After an early breakfast, depart overland into the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, with lunch en route to the camp. You will be camping in the middle of nowhere, in 3×3 metre dome tents, with an en-suite and hot bucket showers. Extended game drives will take you to the game-rich Piper’s Pans area of the Kalahari, as well as the Letiahau and Deception Valleys. Predators which can be seen are lion, cheetah, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox and the African wild cat. Birlife is prolific, with over 400 species in the region.

After breakfast, overland to Maun (approximately 6 hours) and then transfer by air to the private Xigera Concession in the Okavango Delta. The Delta is a complete contrast to the Kalahari, with its fertile green islands and crystal-clear waterways. Relax in the tented rooms overlooking a seasonal floodplain and small lagoon. Enjoy mokoro and motorboat outings. Cool down in the pool in the heat of the day.
