sandy tracks, and through low scrub, where we stop for lunch,
then finally over rolling hills until we reach Deception Valley

beautiful areas of the reserve and we pitch camp on the edge
of the valley before setting off on a late afternoon game drive.
We spend the days taking early morning and late afternoon game
drives when the wildlife at its most active. We can expect to
see some of the smaller predators here such as bat-eared fox
and black-backed jackal, as well as desert antelope like springbok
and gemsbok. If we are lucky we will spot the black-maned Kalahari
lion and cheetah. During, and just after, the wet season game
viewing can be spectacular with lion, cheetah, and hyena all
coming to prey on the abundant springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest,
During the heat of the day we take our lead from the wildlife
and retreat to the shade of the trees for a siesta or to watch
the weaver birds building their nests. After dinner, the open
desert landscapes are perfect for stargazing and if we're lucky
we may see the nocturnal brown hyena.
