Product Information

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is the product of the unification of South Africa's Kalahari Gemsbok National Park and Botswana's Gemsbok National Park into a single mega-park, jointly managed by both countries. Covering a total area of 38 000 square kilometres it is one of the largest national parks in the world. The South African side of the park is dominated by two river valleys the Nossob and the Aob both of which can be dry for decades and only flow freely after particularly heavy rains. The area itself is characterized by red desert sand dunes and typical Kalahari vegetation. The Kgalagadi is remote and gets very hot in summer. The South African side of the park however has a very good infrastructure of roads, accommodation options and camps which stock basic snacks, food, water, fuel and in the case of Twee Rivieren, a restaurant too. Visitors should be largely self-sufficient. The park has no malaria. Rich in wildlife the Kgalagadi is one of the best game viewing parks in South Africa.
