 TOUR DETAILS

The Mabuasehube Game Reserve is located in the Kalahari Desert covering an area of almost 2000 square kilometres. The unforgiving desert terrain is characterised by high red dunes and scattered vegetation. In 1992 the reserve was incorporated into the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, and in 2000 it was also integrated into the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

The reserve’s name is derived from the Senalonga language, and means “red earth”. The reserve was once home to the San people, sometimes called Bushman, and to small groups of inhabitants called the Kgalagadi people.

The rustic campsites are unfenced and do not have electricity or running water. Therefore visitors are required to bring adequate supplies of fuel, food and water.

Those who visit the reserve will discover a dramatic and contrasted landscape. The main attractions at Mabuasehube are the three large salt pans and various smaller ones, which are all divided by small sand dunes. Due to the harsh climate of the region large herds of game of gemsbok and eland are attracted to these pans for both water and to lick salt.

Other species of wildlife regularly sighted at Mabuasehube include lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, both brown and spotted hyena, warthog, bat-eared foxes, jackal, springbok, wildebeest, oryx, kudu, steenbok, duiker, and a variety of other antelope.
