Self drive through Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Views: 619 Visited: Apr 2014 Reviewed: Nov 26, 2014

I visited Kgalagadi on my self drive route from Cape Town to Maun last April. Visiting the park is a must for nature lovers. Being such a remote place and so little visited, it offers you the feeling of really being "in the wild". Staff both in the South Africa and the Botswana sides were really helpful and friendly. read more

Kgalagadi National Park

Views: 699 Visited: Jul 2013 Reviewed: Sep 24, 2013

Known as the "Kgalagadi" by the Khomani San (Bushman), as well as all the visitors to this park that is part of San Parks. The Kgalagadi has a beauty that presents true nature and sometimes in it's harshest form to visitors visiting this park that spans from South Africa into Botswana. The chalet's are well equipped, modern and clean. The camps like Twee Rivieren and Nossob are a pleasure to visit and maintained quite well.

Best remote experience by far...better than the Serengeti.

Wow. Just wow.
One of the earlier parks on our overland from Cape Town to Addis, this park might have been peerless. The freedom of a self-drive park (they all were for us, but there was a greater feeling of freedom here, considering the density of wildlife) is unforgettable. We had lions with cubs pass within 20ft of us. Curious giraffes eyeing us up close. An engorged massive snake dragging its bulk across the road. Three cheetahs loping in... read more

Best game park for self-drive safari!

As far as animal viewing is concerned, you really can’t go wrong in southern Africa. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is absolutely massive and chock full of superlative wildlife. The list would be shorter if I mentioned what we didn’t see! Plenty of zebras, gazelles, gnus, lions and springbok, as well as hartebeest. We even managed to score a cheetah mum with cubs. Just super! The park itself is really gorgeous, those red rolling dunes glowin... read more

Unspoilt African nature

Views: 633 Visited: Jul 2010 Reviewed: Apr 23, 2013

The vastness of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier stirs the feeling of isolated semi-desert life. But your first game sightings will prove otherwise. The Kalahari lions, impressive gemsbok herds, cheetahs, leopards, and giraffes scatter this mega conservation park stretching across South African deep into Botswana. Visiting this park you are spoilt with true wildlife and unspoilt African nature. In true African style, visiting Kgalagadi Transfron... read more

The Magic of the Kalahari

Views: 601 Visited: May 2011 Reviewed: Apr 23, 2013

If your idea of heaven is to completely shrug off the material world and get into the middle of nowhere, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is just what you have been looking for - no cell phones, no crowds, just you and nature! This unique conservation area borders South Africa, Botswana and Namibia and is home to the fantastic Kalahari black-maned lion, among other wonders. This is a very dry region and the lack of vegetation makes game viewi... read more
