This area is Botswana at its most enigmatic. Here you'll find huge tracts of the Kalahari, punctuated only by isolated Bushman settlements. It's an area where you need to have a good 4WD (or two), and you must be totally self-sufficient – travelling with all your own food, water, fuel and equipment.
It's not somewhere which will attract visitors for its game viewing or bird-watching, though you will find both game and birds here. In fact, it's not an area that attracts many visitors at all. But old Africa hands are drawn here for its isolated ranges of hills. One displays a breathtaking cultural heritage of paintings, another hides a labyrinthine cave system, and a third – well... the Aha Hills are just there. On the map. In the middle of the Kalahari. Waiting to be visited.
