    Default Warning entry into central kalahari game reserve (ckgr)

    This information was posted on the Botswana Government Facebook page yesterday (7th February, 2017) and I thought it might be useful to any overlanders planning to go into the CKGR:

    "WARNING ENTRY INTO CENTRAL KALAHARI GAME RESERVE (CKGR)

    The public is advised that weather conditions in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve are very bad due to heavy rains.

    Driving in the park is not advisable at this time, therefore those who choose to drive in the park are advised to use no less than two vehicles.

    The public is further advised that in case they get stuck in the park, they should remain in their vehicles and not try to walk to any nearest places as there are dangerous animals, especially elephants and lions that may prey on them.

    Moreover everyone going into the park should make sure they are equipped with adequate supply of food and water or any other things which they may need in case they get stranded.

    Other tourists are encouraged to help those who may need assistance.

    It will be better to cancel all planned self-drives until the weather conditions improve.

    For any enquiries call +267 6530084 or +267 71400304."
