Bigfoot operates 41 campsites in Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) and in the Khutse Game reserve.

No fuel for sale in Park reserve.

Driving from Xade to Piper Pan took a traveller about 6 hours in April 2010, as it was pouring with rain. The track can then get extremely muddy, and where there is no mud, it will be covered in water.
In the dry season it can take anywhere between 3 and 6 hours as it's a very bumpy and rough track. (April 2010).

 Travel Tip!

Borehole water available at the main gate but visitors are encouraged to bring their own drinking water. You are no longer allowed to collect wood from the bush in the CKGR! (Oct-14).
