The Central Kalahari Game Reserve, or CKGR as it is also commonly known, is the ultimate in remote safari destinations. It covers over 50,000km², most of which is still inaccessible, particularly to the south. Although there have always been small groups of Bushmen living in the reserve, it is only quite recently that it has become more accessible in the north to the public. Even now, this region is seen by only a handful of visitors every year.The ecosystems, wildlife and landscapes in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve differs very much from what you would experience further north in the Okavango regions. With these come a variety of species that are more prolific here than elsewhere in Botswana, such as brown hyena, aardwolf, oryx, bat-eared fox and ostrich.
