Officially declared a protected area in 1971, Khutse (meaning ‘place where you can kneel down and drink’) was the second game reserve established on tribal land in Botswana – Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango was the first. Sharing a boundary with the Central Kalahari Game Reserve to the north, but with no fences separating the two, the 2,500 sq km reserve combines most Kalahari habitat types – rolling grasslands, dry riverbeds, fossil dunes and grassed and bare pans.
