Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (KTP)

Legend says, 'Once the red Kalahari sand bites your toes, you will be drawn back again and again and again'.... Well, we lost our hearts on our first visit - extremely tough as this has caused major contention with our Kruger addiction! This vast and wild wilderness straddles South Africa and Botswana and touches Namibia too. It is the semi desert red dunes and star studded sky and the big cats that draws your soul....CAUTION: HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park covers 3.6m hectares across the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park and the Gemsbok National Park in Botswana – red dunes, blue skies, puffy clouds and wildlife galore … but most importantly, very few people. The accommodation varies from the larger Camps where lions and jackals patrol the fences to the smaller and remote unfenced rustic bush camps where lions, leopards hyenas and jackals are frequent visitors. The sounds of your tyres singing on the sand…. the barking of the geckos …. the eerie howling of the jackals … the sawing of a residential leopard … the cackling of a hyena clan … the reverberating roar of lions … these are the sounds of the Kalahari….Visit if you dare!

🙂 The wildness, the remoteness, the varying redness of the dunes as the day progresses, the blue skies, the wild flowers after the rains, a desert storm…

🙁 What is not to LOVE?!

Here are a few of our photos of wildlife and camps over the past few years since our first visit in March 2016 to give you a taster – just book it NOW!
