South Africa Guide, National Parks Guy

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a 3 800 000ha Park, that was the merger in May 2000 between the South African Kalahari Gemsbok National Park and the Botswana Gemsbok National Park and is one of today’s largest land masses dedicated to ecology.

The Kalahari has always held mystery and wonder for people as it holds salt pans, thornveld and is desert like in habitat. The lions here are special too and worth looking out for. Be prepared for a long drive to get to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Situated in the far North of South Africa it is many km’s away from easy access. You can reach the park via the Upington Airport and then self drive the final part, but I am assured you will not be disappointed.

The sky is crisp and clear and the land has an openness and ruggedness that will have you relaxed and whisked away from this modern world in no time. Come prepared though! Many routes will not allow you to go if you are not self sufficient in your own right!
