Kgalagadi National Park Travel Guide

South Africa, Namibia and Botswana share boundaries and game parks too, and perhaps the best example of this is the huge Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park- formerly known as the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, and regarded as one of the region’s best wildlife reserves.

The Gemsbok National Park in Botswana merges with Kgalagadi in South Africa, covering in all an area of about 36,000 sq km. Of this, the South African reserve accounts for almost 10,000 sq km- an expanse of arid land drained by two rivers, the Nossob and the Auob. There are no boundaries between the South African and Botswanan parks, and animals move freely from one park to the other.

Shoes are necessary especially in the evening to protect from scorpion stings.

If driving, be sure to carry a 10 litre can of water at all times. When driving from one rest camp to the other, travellers should depart with travelling times in mind to ensure arrival before sunset as no travelling is allowed in the park after dark. If you do have breakdown, stay in your vehicle. It is the safest place.
