Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park,
Africa accommodation experience second to none

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park lies hidden away inside a narrow stretch of land in the Kalahari wilderness between Botswana on the one side and Namibia on the other in the most northern part of the Northern Cape province.

In the beginning it was proclaimed as the Kalahari National Gemsbok Park in 1931, primarily to safeguard the migrating wildlife, particularly the gemsbok.

In combination with the adjacent Gemsbok National Park in Botswana it presently forms the 3,6 million hectares or 38000 sq. km Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park, the first across-border national park in Africa.

The Park offers some fabulous accommodation within its three traditional rest camps and six wilderness camps, making your stay in the Park absolutely enjoyable.

These camps are connected by gravelroads and tracks along the dry Auob and Nossob riverbeds. Wherever you choose to stay, you will not be disappointed.

For those who like to be pampered in luxury, there is the top of the range luxurious !Xaus Lodge, owned and operated by the Khomani San end Mier communities. They are members of a small number of descendents of the original inhabitants of the area, the “San” people.

The three traditional rest camps "Twee Rivieren", "Mata-Mata" and "Nossob", are much like those in the other South African National Parks. Next to caravan and camping sites, they offer fully serviced self catering Chalets and Cottages, including amenities such as air-conditioning, shopping and swimming pools.

In the six wilderness camps you can truly enjoy the interaction with nature as they are not fenced off, allowing the desert to enter into your camp and make you feel as if you are part of the Kalahari. There is always an armed ranger on duty.

The wilderness camps provide little more than shelter and wash water; visitors must supply their own food, drinking water, and firewood. For your protection each camp has an armed ranger living on site and by the way, do not to walk outside at night time.
