        From Upheaval to Calm "CKGR is like no other - one has to be totally self - sufficient in everything and the sense of cosmic openness and unspoilt wilderness will suddenly dawn on you and give you goosebumps. "The area is a gigantic 52 800 sq km and is the largest nature reserve in the world, bigger than Holland. It was declared a reserve by the British in 1961". Camps and roads are mainly concentrated in the extreme north. "Deception Valley - An ancient riverbed that ...

The main camp is extremely comfortable and has 15 rooms, a swimming pool, restaurant, sitting rooms and a small conference room. While were there, a group of photographic enthusiasts were doing a safari with ...

        Day 19 was another day filled with game watching and relaxing. Apart from the normal elephants etc, we came across a lioness crossing the road. Another interesting sight was a Tawny Eagle eating what appeared to be a Black Mamba that he had caught. The snake was at least two and a half ...

        Day 18 we packed up and left Moremi for Savuti in the South of Chobe Reserve. The roads are a challenge and a lot of it needs to be done in 4×4. On the road we came across a Python of about two meters long. The area is real bush. No electricity or cell phone signal so if one breaks down or runs out of fuel you pretty much stay ...
