The ABT base-camp is situated just 35km south of the main entrance gate to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park at Twee Rivieren, in the heart of the red Kalahari dune fields. Here we offer students an unique chance to wander on foot through this awe-inspiring landscape where the sky and the rolling sand dunes give the impression of limitless space and the bowl of the heavens stretches from horizon to horizon.
At our Kalahari Camp, students can experience a Kalahari that they would not see from a car. Although all local game species are present here, as well as nearly 200 species of birds - it is the small creatures that make this desert so unique.
Join us on daily guided walks and drives and come to learn about and appreciate the amazing biodiversity of this region.
Read "Last night's newspaper" from the tracks left in the sand on our early morning guided walks, sitting around the campfire under a star-filled sky, listening to the kalahari lions roaring in a distance and learning how to survive in the desert straight from the bush man themselves is all part of this eye-opening and life changing experience- not to be missed. The Desert Discovery Course offers nature enthusiasts, photographers, birders, botanists, astronomers and those who are just interested in Nature an once in a lifetime experience they will not soon forget
