Adventurous travelers looking for a truly secluded African safari will be thrilled to discover it in the center of Botswana. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the second-largest game reserve in the world and one of the least visited game reserves. Nothing can prepare you to explore the vast reserve with its wild, untouched beauty. The landscape is dominated by sand fields, acacia, and Kalahari apples, crisscrossed with grasslands dotted with occasional sand dunes, pans, and fossilized river valleys. While the reserve is home to an impressive variety of wildlife, there is one animal that is obviously lacking, the human. It is this lack of human traffic, combined with the park's minimum human infrastructure, that makes for a sophisticated and wonderfully authentic African experience. The visitors must be completely self-sufficient, but for those who make an effort will be rewarded richly.
