If you think the desert is bland, you’ve obviously never been to the Kalahari. It’s a magical place where dry landscapes and red dunes provide the backdrop to a singularly unique experience!
The red dunes and scrub fade into infinity and herds of gemsbok, springbok, eland and blue wildebeest follow the seasons, where imposing camel thorn trees provide shade for huge black-mane lions and vantage points for leopard and many raptors... this is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Parkark.
Here, Botswana and South Africa have joined forces to protect the wildlife on opposite sides of their border, forming the world's first Transfrontier Park: the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. This consists of about 38,000km² of the Kalahari and was previously split between South Africa's Kalahari Gemsbok National Park and Botswana's Gemsbok National Park.
Being away from most major routes, the park gets few visitors, making it ideal for dedicated game-viewers. Springbok, blue wildebeest, gemsbok, red hartebeest and eland abound, while meerkats, leopards, and black-maned lions add to the entertainment. This is also one of Africa's best safari parks for cheetah, which thrive by hunting in its fossil river valleys and the surrounding Kalahari dunes. The Kgalagadi is also a haven for birders, especially those interested in birds of prey.
This is the ultimate adventure for the seasoned safari-goer who wants a really authentic and special experience. Visiting Kgalagadi on the Botswana side is a like going back in time, you are going to experience real wilderness, just the way it has been for thousands of years. We are extremely happy to be able to offer this very special safari.
This safari is only done as a customized special itinerary done in cooperation with our guests. The logistics and distances is a real challenge and we recommend spending at least 12 nights in Kgalagadi.
