Central Kalahari Game Reserve Warning

If you are planning a trip to Central Kalahari Game Reserve in the next couple of months, please take note of the below:

From the Botswana Government Page.


The public is advised that road conditions in the Kalahari Game Reserve are very bad due to heavy rains.

Driving in the park is not advisable at this time, therefore those who choose to drive in the park are advised to use no less than two vehicles.

The public is further advised that in case they get stuck in the park, they should remain in their vehicles and not try to walk to any nearest place as there are dangerous animals, especially elephants and lions that may prey on them.

Moreover everyone going into the park should make sure they are equipped with adequate supply of food, water and any other supplies and equipment which they may need in case they get stranded.

Other tourists are encouraged to help those who may need assistance. It will be better to cancel all planned self-drives until the weather conditions improve.
