17 DAYS - RICHTERS SAFARIS TOUR 11.1


DAY 1 UPINGTON – KGALAGADI
Depart from Upington to the largest camp in Kgalagadi Trans Frontier Park, Twee Rivieren. On the route, we stop at the last indigenous San tribe in South Africa, the Khomani. Today these earliest residents of the Kalahari, living here for 40 000 years, consist of only 400 people and are resident in an area between 40 and 70 km south of Twee Rivieren. Clients will have the opportunity to view and purchase their handcraft at one of the roadside stalls. Check in at Two Rivers on the Botswana side. Game drive to Rooiputs Campsite on the Botswana side, in this 37 000 square km park, which is one of the largest conservation areas in the world and one of the last truly unspoilt ecosystems. Endemic game such as gemsbok, springbok, eland, giraffe, blue wildebeest and red hartebeest roam the sparsely vegetated red sand dunes and the dry river valleys of the Nossob and Auob where a variety of acacia species thrives. The Park is well known for good sightings of lion, leopard, cheetah, and spotted - and brown hyena are common residents. Because of an abundance of prey in the form of mice, whistling rats, birds and insects, smaller predators thrive in the park. The park is home to caracal, honey badger, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, cape fox, African wildcat, mongoose and the ever-popular suricate (meerkat). Kgalagadi is a bird watcher’s paradise with more than 300 species recorded including at least 20 larger raptor species. The world’s heaviest flying bird, the Kori bustard and the stately secretary bird patrol the riverbeds while the noisy northern black korhaan rule in the dunes. Camping in the wild with no protective fencing is an experience. Enjoy dinner around the fire, while listening to the sounds of the night. Do not be surprised if you hear lion, hyena, leopard and black backed jackal during the night. Lions are regular visitors to Rooiputs at night. (The facilities at Rooiputs are very basic. Each campsite has an A-frame shade structure, pit toilet and a shelter for a portable shower bag.)
