After our stay at Modisa, we headed to Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) - the second largest terrestrial game reserve in the world. Our days here consisted of game drives in the morning, student presentations after lunch, and then another mid-afternoon game drive before we headed back to camp for dinner. While here we saw a wide assortment of wildlife including gemsbok, springbok, giraffes, bat-eared foxes, jackals, lions (and a couple lion cubs!), and cheetahs.
Gemsbok are easily identified by there painted faces and v-shaped horns. This one is a female based upon her narrower horns and thinner neck.
