Granted, Khama is our first game park, but never in our wildest dreams did we expect to see so many animals, and so easily. We visited in mid-week in March, rainy season, which is supposed to make it harder to find animals, but perhaps because...More

The initial expereience was horrible. The prices reflected on line are nothing to when one gets there. It is inflated! The person that checked us in said they were aware of it, but that's just how it is. After driving four hours to get there,...More

This is quite a small place to do a Safari which is good because there are 50+ rhinos here so you're more likely to stumble along one. We were there for 10 mins and bumped into about 15 at the first watering hole! We also...More

We spent four great days in Chalets C and D here - in the depths of the game reserve! You can camp - but we prefer the chalets. We cooked on the braai every day - self-catering and we did not leave the sanctuary until...More

We enjoyed our stayover at Khama. Campsites are neat, ablution facilities were clean. Sandy roads to sites might require 4 wheel drive at times. Fireplace at campsite was in working condition.

The two main features are the large open pan and the bird hide. It is also possible to do guided rhino walks in the early morning, which are very exciting. The roads are all very sandy and without a 4x4 you can only rely on...More

The camping is under big trees, but a bit confusing to find especially at night. The ablutions are clean and neat, but a distance from the campsite. Beautiful reserve to drive through and a good place to see rhinos in there natural habitat. The reception...More

Arrived late and in the dark, only just in time for our pre-booked game drive. We opted to accommodate in a chalet rather than locate then setup camp in the camping ground (as planned) so we could still do the night game drive. The accommodation...More

Obviously the Rhino Sanctuary is a great place to see Rhinos - both white and black. I saw half a dozen White Rhinos on my drive but unfortunately no Black Rhinos. I was unable to stay in the reserve as I would have liked as...More
