THURSDAY – 16 JANUARY 2020 (19:30)

Speaker: Cornè Rautenbach

Topic: Central Kalahari Game Reserve & Boteti River

Visiting the less travelled and unknown Central Kalahari GR and the nearby Boteti River – which is the lifeline for the Makgadikgadi National Park. This is as remote as it gets in Sub-Saharan Africa, where Cornè and John enjoyed the magic of the untamed Kalahari, far removed from all civilization.
