Where is Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park?

MeetkatKgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a vast wildlife preserve which spreads over the Kalahari Desert region of Botswana and South Africa and borders onto Namibia to the west. The park is Africa's first formally declared trans-border conservation area and was officially opened in 2000. The scenery is stark and beautiful and is characterized by red dunes and dry rivers.

Several lodges and wilderness camps in the park offer accommodation, plus game-viewing drives and guided walks with park rangers. The wildlife on offer includes migrating herds of blue wildebeest, eland, red hartebeest and springbok, plus predators like raptors and famous black-maned Kalahari lions.

You are also likely to spot the honey badger (ratel), bat-eared fox or pangolin (scaly anteater) and there is a chance of seeing some leopard, cheetah or the brown and spotted hyena. Also of interest are the ground squirrels and Suricate (Meerkat).

Activities on offer in the park include exploring in a 4x4 or similar vehicle, preferably with high clearance. In the heat of summer, there are swimming pools available at Twee Rivieren and the various camps in the area. Hides are available for game viewing at the Mata Mata waterhole and Nossob Rest Camps. Also worth a visit is the Predator Centre at Nossob camp.

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is located approximately 250 km from Upington in the far Northern Cape and 904 km from the city of Johannesburg.
