The Tusk Photo Kgalagadi safari takes you to the heart of one of the best wildlife destinations in Southern Africa, deep in the heart of the Kalahari desert. This wild desert environment with its iconic red dunes plays host to some of the most amazing wildlife spectacles and a huge diversity of wildlife. The Kalahari is well known for its huge Black Maned Lions that rule this inhospitable ecosystem. Together with Cheetah and Leopard they are the top predators with smaller predators such as Spotted Hyena, Brown Hyena, Black Backed Jackal, Cape Fox, African Wildcat, Caracal and more found on a regular basis. There is also an abundance of prey animals with large herds of Springbok, Oryx / Gemsbok and Blue Wildebeest. The park is also well know for its abundant and diverse raptor numbers. The stark Kalahari has its own charm and beauty, which becomes highly addictive when one is exposed to its alluring and secretive personality. This place has a way to grown on photographers like no other..!
