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

We stayed here for 6 nights and in that time only saw 5 vehicles! There had been plenty of rain in February and March so the grass was high so you only saw animals on, or very close to, the tracks or at the pans....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

As a Botswana resident, be advised that Khutse is not for the first time safari-goer. The main access road from the capital can be poor, with severe corrugations. Game can be sparse. There are virtually no facilities and you must be self-sufficient in water, fuel...More
