Helicopter flights over the Delta (optional) are one of life’s big adventures and the animals are unperturbed by our aircraft. Surprisingly, you may hover just a few feet over great herds of zebra as they continue to graze, completely unconcerned. A Helicopter Safari offers access to remote, inaccessible lakes and islands that can only be seen from the sky.
Even more exciting, you may be able to touch down on an island far away from human habitation and stand in a spot that for thousands of years has been cut off from the world beyond. A speed boat may appear bearing coffee or a celebratory glass of sparkling wine: sip at leisure as you gaze on lush, riverine scenery—one of the world’s last wildernesses.

This, the first safari camp to be built in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR), is a model of environmental sensitivity, having been constructed with the delicate ecologies in mind. Using only solar power for the generation of electricity, heating of water and pumping water from deep under the Kalahari sands, the waste water is treated in a state-of-the-art treatment plant and the fully treated water is returned to the sands from whence it came.
Activities offered include game drives, day trips to the well-known Deception Valley, Sunday, Piper and Passage Pans, star gazing, bush brunches on the Tau Pan, and nature walks with Bushman trackers.
