Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

kalahari transfrontier partKgalagadi Transfrontier Park Combining the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park (South Africa) and the Gemsbok National Park (Botswana) this Peace Park covers over 3.6-million hectares of wilderness.

 

Located in the extreme south west area of Botswana, the park is one of Africa's last remaining conservation areas of this size.

The landscape is made up of red sand dunes, sparse vegetation
and the dry riverbeds of the Nossob and Auob.

In the southern part of the district near Bokspits, are large, red dunes which are a spectacle to watch and a challenge to climb.

Because of its tough terrain, many parts of this district remain virgin waiting to be experienced. The vegetation consists of acacia woodland, acacia scrub, and savanna grasslands.

Despite this dryness and low rainfall, the Kalahari supports
a diverse and abundant mammal fauna.

Camping Facilities
there are a few camping sites most of which are still undeveloped. Visitors should be entirely self sufficient although in an emergency, water can be obtained from the Game Scouts camp.

Campsites on the South African side can be found at Nossob, Twee Rivieren and Mata Mata as well as shops where you can purchase fuel and foodstuffs including meat and vegetables.


From Namibia, the Kalahari can be reached through Mamuno borderpost in the Ghanzi District some 110km away

Tourists can also enter Kgalagadi Park through the South African section at Two Rivers (Twee Rivieren).

Entry into the central Botswana area can also be reached via five international border posts all are situated on the border with South Africa - Bray, Makopong, McCarthy's Rust, Middlepits and Bokspits.

The area supports wildebeest, eland, hartebeest, gemsbok and springbok, and a healthy population of large predators - lions, leopards, cheetah, jackal and brown hyena

There are 3 trails i.e. Gemsbok Wilderness Trail - Mabuasehube Wilderness Trail and the Nossob
4 x 4 Eco Trail affording the visitor the opportunity to experience the Kalahari - its wildlife residents, its birdlife and its ecology first hand.
