Central Kalahari Game Reserve
Discover big sky country where the legendary Kalahari black-maned lions roam the vast plains, ancient riverbeds and salt pans.
When you visit the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, at 52 800km2 one of the largest conservation areas in the world, you’ll discover big sky country where the legendary Kalahari black-maned lions and stately desert oryx roam the vast plains, ancient riverbeds and salt pans. The main wildlife concentrations are found in the north of the reserve, where you can stay at a luxury lodge (don’t miss a fascinating desert walk with traditional San hunters); or, if you’re adventurous and completely self-reliant, you can traverse the entire reserve – an exhilarating journey of at least two days of 4×4 wilderness travelling. Undeveloped campsites are available for overnight stops. Regardless of how intrepid or well-stocked you are, however, you should only travel in groups of two or more vehicles.

Rwanda has two rainy seasons: the first is from around February to June and the second from September through December. These are separated by two dry seasons: June to September, during which there is often no rainfall at all, and a shorter dry period from December to February. Typically the west and North-west of Rwanda receives more rainfall annually than the South-east and east of the country.
