Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Also called a Transfrontier Peace Park, the government of Botswana and South Africa agreed to take down the fences between Botswana’s Gemsbok National Park and South Africa’s Kalahari Gemsbok Park. This unique park allows visitors to enter in one country are allowed to leave out another. There is also a border post to Namibia.

By removing the fences between the 2 parks, the animals reestablished ancient migration routes. There are various camps and concessions in the park, both camping and self-catering. There are also some lodges that can only be accessed by 4×4. On the South African side you will find lodges with facilities, on the Botswana side there are wilderness camps where you need to take all your own food, drinking water and firewood.

This park is located mainly in the southern Kalahari Desert, the word Kgalagadi means “land of thirst”.  Game viewing is fantastic along the dry river beds of Nossob and Auob RiversThe rivers will sometimes flow for a short time after heavy thunderstorms. When this happens there is a mass arrival of so many animals, you just have to sit back and wait to see them all!

The land has red sand dunes and sparse vegetation and it is in this park that you can see the black-maned Kalahari lion. You will also see herds of the noble Gemsbok and Eland. There are also leopards, cheetah, spotted hyena, wild dog, black-backed jackal, blue wildebeest, springbok, red hartebeest, duiker and steenbok. Some 215 bird species have been recorded.
