Where the red dunes and scrubs fade away into infinity and herds of gemsbok, springbok, eland and blue wildebeest follow the seasons, where imposing camel thorn trees provide shade of huge black-mane Kalahari lions and vantage points for leopard and many raptors…this is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is one of five national parks set aside within Botswana’s vast share of the Kgalagadi desert. It is one of the largest conservation areas in the world, and one of the last truly unspoilt ecosystems. Travellers should leave their Big Five notions at home: there are no elephants, rhinos or buffalos here. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a self-drive destination and visitors have to be completely self-sufficient for the duration of the stay, ideal for dedicated game-viewers, bird-watchers, and for guests seeking a desert and solitude feel.
