  • iKhamab is the San word for Cape Fox, a shy predator. This is an authentic and exclusive safari experience in the Kalahari untouched, harsh, the real thing.

    This tour is an exclusive trip to a 96 000ha private reserve with the lodge the only accommodation sleeping 8 people maximum with the Big 5 on your doorstep. You will never experience an open vehicle safari better than the one at !Khamab.

    Day 1: Saturday 19 October       

    We depart early from JHB at 07H00 and head for the North West province. This is a long drive but well worth the travelling and we will do convenience stops and brunch in Sannieshof. We arrive in Vryburg in the afternoon and sleep over at a Guesthouse to split the distance we have to travel as the Khamab on a gravel road shortly after Vryburg, Approx 97 kilometers from any tar road. At leisure for the rest of the afternoon and dinner at the guesthouse.

    Full board trip with soft drinks included.

    Day 2: Sunday – 20 October

    After breakfast we depart further into the NW province heading towards Tosca (convenience stop) and soon after we leave the tar road and meet the green Kalahari in all its splendour. This part of the trip we reduce our speed and enjoy the Kalahari with a picnic along the road. Once we reach the gate and enter Khamab, Ian and Mark take over with cold drinks and check you in to your accommodation. Enjoy a late afternoon open vehicle game drive. Dinner in the boma depending on weather conditions.

    Day 3,4 & 5: Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday  - 21 & 22 October

    Depart early after a cold breakfast and explore this reserve.You might spot the anti-poaching unit and what an honor to meet these guys protecting endangered species. The Big 5 are here and the reserve Ecologist has been working the past 16 years preparing the reserve for visitors like you. We have to work to find the big 5 and at the same time, see an amazing bird life and smaller Kalahari animals. This is really authentic and exclusive. The Kalahari is harsh so be prepared for hot weather in the day and cool to cold at night.

    We will enjoy the morning and afternoon game drives to also view the nocturnal wildlife and enjoy the sunrise and sunsets with a drink in hand. On one of the days we will have a longer game drive and enjoy lunch in the bush as we travel down south to see Khamab Game Reserve with amazing nature around you. It is a long day but well worth the experience. Lunch will be under a Camel thorn tree.

    Returning to the Lodge to rest and enjoy dinner.

    Day 6: Thursday 23 October

    After breakfast either depart back home by road via Vryburg or depart for the landing strip for your flight back to Johannesburg. You will be met at the airport for your transport to your home or hotel.
