Botswana Safari

Khutse Game Reserve

Safari Information

Return to Map of Botswana

The 2,600 square kilometre Khutse Game Reserve is a popular weekend excursion for the residents of Gabarone. The name means 'where one kneels to drink'. Due to prolonged drought in recent years, Khutse doesn't have the concentrations of wildlife found in northern Botswana, but the solitude of the pans and savanna scrub can be almost complete. Visitors can expect to see a variety of antelope - Wildebeest, Eland, Duiker, Steenbok, Hartebeest, Kudu, Gemsbok and Springbok - but not in large numbers.

Also present are predators such as Lion, Leopard, Brown and Spotted Hyena, Jackal, Caracal (which the San people believe to be the reincarnation of the Morning Star) and even Wild Dogs. Around the pans you'll also find smaller creatures such as Ground Squirrels, hares, Bat-eared foxes, Black-footed cats, Pangolins, Aardvarks, Aardwolves, Porcupines and Warthogs. The bird life is also good and quite varied.

The best time to visit is after the rainy season has begun, usually December-April.

There are no permanent camps in Khutse and only three public campsite but only one, Golabodimo Pan, near the entry gate, has running water and showers. Fourteen kilometres west from the entry gate is Khutse II Pan, with a rudimentary camp site. Much nicer is the camp site at Moreswa Pan, which is located 67km from the gate.
