We love the Desert, we live in the Desert and we love to share the Desert
We take you nowhere and show you nothing
(OFF THE BEATEN TRACK)
The area directly around Mabuasehube.
We offer wilderness tours , in conjunction with Cornwall Safaris
Previously hunting area but now open for tourism and no fences between here and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
You are hereby invited ......
For an EXCLUSIVE tour to a private concession area of 4 million hectares, an area previously only used for elite hunting safaris,
but now open for tourism.
It is an area adjoining the Mabuasehube-Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, there are no fences and no other people.
The earmark of this area is that the owner of the concession wants to keep it as wild and exclusive as possible, allowing only a couple of small guided groups per year.
Guided tours only by a selected few tour operators such as VIROSATOURS, otherwise a highly restricted area.
We run safari's into the area on a weekly basis, where you start on Saturday evening at Cornwall ranch and end during the next week.
Off the beaten track, 4x4 adventure into exclusive Kalahari Wilderness area 4 Million Hectares (twice the size of the Kruger Park)
No Other people
Guided with wild animal tracker.
Plenty of other game; Eland, Gemsbok, Blue wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Springbok and also smaller mammals like Honey badger Aardvark etc. I have personally seen 15000 Springbok and 400 Eland.
Photographic opportunities for wild life and breath-taking Kalahari landscapes
Camp under the stars, getting real close to African wild life at night (Lion, hyena, jackals etc. and their calls)
No extensive driving; will set camp at about 16:00; allowing you to explore a bit and enjoying the sunset.
Evening meal will be supplied
These are really wild animals; hardly any human encounters.
Maximum six vehicles per trip
The trip will start on any given Saturday at Cornwall House near the Bray border control, where the first night will be spent.
Camping R300-00pp Dinner bed breakfast included.
Lodging R500-00pp Dinner bed breakfast included.
From Cornwall we travel to the concession area that is situated around the Mabuasehube camp. Will then travel in a circular route through the area depending on where the game is at that stage.
Daily time guidance; Start driving as early as possible, lunch break at about 12:00
and setting camp at around 16h00, from where you may explore a bit and go for a sunset drive.
We then make a huge communal Kalahari fire.
In case of emergency will be able to refill our water supplies at the Mabuasehube gate.
The trip will end on the given day and there will be time to drive home or make the border..
