Khama Rhino Sanctuary

 

Location

The Khama Rhino Sanctuary Trust is situated in the sandy Kalahari on the main road between Serowe and Orapa. It is a nature reserve for breeding rhinos, but other game and birds can be seen here. It is ideal as a stop-over en-route to northern Botswana or for a weekend trip from Gabarone and Francistown.

Description

In this protected area you can participate in game drives and game walks. Chalets and camping accommodation are available for overnight stays.

Further into the reserve are the lodgings, pool, restaurant and Educational Centre with information on the nature reserve and its animals.
