In an attempt to preserve Indigenous San hunter/gatherer tribes in the Kalahari, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve situated in the middle of Botswana was born in 1961. The game reserve, which is the second biggest in the world, was to provide a sanctuary for the Basarwa or San tribe who are commonly referred to as Bushmen.

Due to the decision to endeavour to protect the San lifestyle from being destroyed by influences of the outside world, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve was closed for approximately 30 years. From the 1980’s the number of visitors to the park was controlled. Sadly however the San tribes who have lived in Central Kalahari for thousands of years began living in settlements within the southern half of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and changed their unique lifestyle.

It is amazing to think that the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is a wilderness area larger than Denmark or Switzerland, 52 000 sq km in total. The panoramic views change before your eyes and consist of vastly differing terrains and scenery – tall golden grass; dwarfed trees and scrub bush; wide, empty pans; sand dunes; shallow fossil river valleys and cloudless blue skies – overwhelming in its beauty. At night, the picture changes to velvet black skies teeming with blinding starlight.

Wildlife in the northern grassland landscapes are usually sparse but after the short lived summer rains, the landscape becomes alive with large herds of springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest, hartebeest, giraffe and eland enjoying the new grazing.

Travelling through this untouched wilderness with such variety and unspoiled scenery one feels as if there is no end to this piece of Africa.

Due to the Botswana government initiating plans to move tourists and tourism away from the Okavango and Chobe areas, to decrease the intensity of tourists in that area, this has created new opportunities for development. The government has allowed concessions for lodge construction as well as allowing for tourists to be flown in. These factors have provided the opportunity for the Eco Safari Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary to be established for tourists to experience the various options made available.
