Counting down to the Kalahari

Not too long to go now until my trip to the Kalahari. My itinerary is as follows:

  • 19 April – Khama Rhino Santuary
  • 20 April – Passarge Valley Central Kalahari
  • 22 April – Sunday Pan Central Kalahari
  • 23 April – Motopi Central Kalahari
  • 24 April – Letiahau Central Kalahari
  • 26 April – Sunday Pan Central Kalahari
  • 28 April -South Camp Nxai Pan

When camping in the Central Kalahari there are NO facilities with the exception of long drop toilets at some (not all) of the campsites. In order to make the trip I’ll be carrying about 100l of water and 185l of diesel with me. In case of emergencies I have an inReach satellite communicator. This will also enable me to send tweets throughout my journey. If you’ve keen to follow me, hit me up on Twitter @african_rover or just come to this site After the trip I’ll be posting a full trip report with photos.

This is my first solo trip and while some nerves are starting to set in, I’m excited for the challenge! If you will be in either the CKGR or Nxai Pan Game Reserve over the same time please send me a mail – it would be great to meet up to share a beer and exchange stories.
