Khama Rhino Sanctuary Serowe
Central Region

Accommodation Botswana

The Khama Rhino Sanctuary Trust is a community based wildlife project near Serowe, established in 1992 to assist in saving the vanishing rhino and to restore an area formerly teeming with wildlife to its previous natural state. Covering approximately 4,300 hectares of Kalahari sandveld, the Sanctuary is centred around Serowe Pan - a large grass covered depression with several natural water holes. Serowe Pan provides prime habitat for white rhinoceros and other grazing animals, whilst the denser vegetation in the southern area of the Sanctuary is favoured by browsing animals such as giraffe. To date, 14 white rhino have been translocated into the Sanctuary. The first four arrived in February 1993, from northern Botswana.
All the rhino settled well and soon began breeding. With further translocations, some sad deaths, and many happy births (the most recent addition being born in April 2001) the total number of white rhino at the Sanctuary is currently 18.

Guided game drives, rhino trails and nature walks can be booked. Both take about two hours, during which time you will be guided around the Sanctuary by the well trained and very knowledgeable Rangers. The Sanctuary is home to other wildlife which have settled naturally or been translocated in: such as zebra, blue wildebeest, giraffe, eland, springbok, impala, gemsbok, kudu, steenbok, leopard, African wild cat, black backed jackal, brown hyena and many more. Over 230 bird species have also been identified here including Abdim's stork and bearded woodpecker.

These take about 2 hours, during which you will be guided around the Sanctuary by the well knowledgeable Rangers. Morning drives start at 6am, afternoon drives at 4pm and night drives at 7pm. The Sanctuary's road are well maintained and sign-posted making them suitable for self-drive game viewing in 4x4-wheel drive or pickup.
The chalets all have toilets and showers en-suite with hot and cold water, bedding and towels are provided. They also have braai facilities, a fireplace. Each chalet has a paraffin lamp and strip lights are solar powered. There is no power in chalets A, B, C, D, E and A-frame and  campsites.
The campsites have a braai stand with grill, and a tap with birdbath and are served by two communal ablution blocks each with male and female showers with hot and cold water.


From Gaborone or Francistown you drive to Palapye, then west to Serowe. The Khama Rhino Sanctuary is on the main tarred road between Serowe and Orapa approximately 25 km from Serowe. From Serowe turn off north to Orapa as you come into the village from Palapye or opposite the Serowe main Mall. The Sanctuary is on the left hand side of the road approximately 5 km beyond the village of Paje. From Orapa follow the road south for about 180km and the Sanctuary is on your right.
