Khamab Kalahari Workshop 2024
The Kalahari desert elicits feelings of intensity, allure, and most importantly, seclusion. This sanctuary embodies all these qualities. Covering an expansive area of 95,000 hectares, the reserve boasts only a single lodge, providing unparalleled exclusivity. Consequently, visitors can fully immerse themselves in the captivating sights and atmosphere of the Kalahari without any hindrances or time constraints. This ensures a truly unrivaled and uninterrupted experience. The environments we will be investigating vary from expansive grasslands and ancient dried-up waterbeds to dense patches of vegetation and open woodlands filled with Camelthorn trees. In this region, water is crucial for survival, and it is a scarce resource, with only eight designated water sources in the reserve. The local wildlife is attracted to these vital water sources, leading to remarkable interactions, and the unobstructed surroundings provide excellent opportunities for captivating photography. In addition to the typical Kalahari species, this reserve is within the Eastern Kalahari biome, which has historically attracted several other species to the area. Currently, African Wild Dogs, Black and White Rhinoceros, Elephants, and Buffalos once again inhabit the eastern Kalahari, alongside Lions, Cheetahs, Oryx, and Springbuck. The combination of these iconic species and the picturesque ambiance of the Kalahari creates an extraordinary photographic safari experience that is truly unique. However, the exclusivity of this opportunity may not last long, so take advantage of this incredible hidden gem while you still can.
