The Central Kalahari can be reached by vehicle. It is roughly a six-hour drive from Maun to the northern part of the park, which is where most mobile tour operators set up. It is roughly a 4.5 hour drive to the park entry gates. Count on at least another hour of driving to reach camp sites.

It is also possible to do a fly-in safari using a private charter. Many visitors use charter companies based in Maun to fly to the various lodges in Botswana. These include Delta AirMack AirMoremi Air Services, Wilderness Air, Wildlife Helicopters and Kalahari Air Services.
