Kgalagadi


Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa was proclaimed in 1931 mainly to protect the migrating game, especially the gemsbok. Together with the adjacent Gemsbok National Park in Botswana, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park comprises an area of over 3,6 million hectares – one of very few safari parks of this magnitude left in the world.
South African National Parks runs a variety of overnight accommodation at its three main rest camps. We recommend that you spend at least three nights (giving you two full days in the park). Always book in advance (click on the map opposite to visit SANParks™ website).

Red sand dunes, sparse vegetation and the dry riverbeds of the Nossob and Auob show antelope and predator species off to spectacular advantage, providing fantastic photography opportunities.
The Kgalagadi is a haven for birders, especially those interested in birds of prey.
The park has six different camps of varying size and facilities. The three main camps have a basic shopping facility and fuel. For the more adventurous there are three wilderness camps that, with no fences, invite the Kalahari and the tranquillity of Africa right into your room.
