Been planning the trip for about 3 weeks, after making the booking through Bigfoot Safaris and Tours in Gaborone, we eagerly traveled the 260km (100km gravel/sand) to Khutse. Unfortunately we couldn't get the same campsite for 2 consecutive nights as all camps were already booked...More

the camping facilities are very nice and well kept, the area - if you like the Kalahari - is very pleasant, you'll see quite some game including elephants and you may be lucky spotting a lion as well

They seem to want you to have reservations, but the people I was traveling with (who had lived in Botswana) couldn't figure out how to make those required reservations. We went, were told we couldn't have a reservation. They were "full". There were no other...More
