Travel Alert

Khutse GR is located 240km/149mi from Gaborone. The park is a popular weekend retreat from the city. There is no accommodation in or near the park, but there are several campsites with limited facilities inside the park. Self-drive visitors need to be self-sufficient and bring enough fuel and water among other supplies. There are no fences between the reserve and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, and it’s possible to arrive here in a 4x4 from the north.

There are several possible points of entry into the country depending on your itinerary, but to visit Khutse, most visitors fly into Botswana’s main airport, Sir Seretse Khama International Airport (GBE), located 11km/7miles north of Gaborone. Your tour operator will meet you there, or you can pick-up a 4x4 if you have booked a self-drive safari.
