Through the Kalahari

Vast expanses of land, pure tranquillity, red sand dunes and barren semi-arid areas shape the face of this stage. Yet in the heart of this seemingly uninhabitable region we’ll find a broad range of animals, including lions, elephants, springboks, giraffes, hyenas, cheetahs, antelopes, blue wildebeest and many more. Our route takes us through the most stunning areas of the 1.2 million square kilometre Kalahari Desert, along tracks that were still impassable just a few years ago. A truly unique offroad adventure!
