Our Botswana Outfitter operates photographic and hunting safaris in an area of 60,000 hectares, (approx. 148,000 acres), one of the largest privately owned game ranches in Botswana.

The landscape covers a variety of desert terrain, including woodland and open veld pan areas. Our Professional Hunters have extensive experience in the Kalahari environment, and the Bushman trackers come from around our area.
