    One of the things I love most about spending time in wild places ⁠is often the moments before a photograph is taken, especially with landscape photography. ⁠ ⁠ When you are waiting for the sun to set or the right light, you are given time to pause and reflect. To take a step back from thinking analytically about all of the technical elements of a photograph. For me, I think taking these breaks result in a better images, at least to me, because I take the time to feel that ineffable the "thing" I'm trying to capture in that scene. ⁠ ⁠ Thinking about some of those moments fills me with gratitude and now the excitement that comes with the prospect of getting back on the road again! 🌅

    Always an amazing place to come and visit. Situated in a point between Botswana and Namibia. This park is absolutely stunning. If you would like to go on the 4x4 trails do book well in advance as it is always booked. They also have open camps (where you camp in the wild within fences). That is just an incredibly treasured memory for me. Come here every year and would come back again.

    The best place in South Africa!! My newest favorite place!! It was amazing, we saw a few storm clouds move over, the field and animals look amazing. Saw almost everything. Would recommend staying inside the park, As you can start the day a bit early and catch more animals in the morning.

    Spectacular this year- Brilliant game viewing!! It was a treat to get there in summer, we've never experienced it so green and verdant before. Added some random shots in no special order....

    Amazing park. Astonishing desert scenery and plenty of wildlife. A remote locations makes it also much less busy and crowded however advance booking of accommodation is still recommended.

    We had a great time in the Kgalagadi. Lots of animals and birds to see, even in the 40+ heat of summer. The roads are good but very sandy, you need to lower your tyre pressure. And drive slowly, animals like to run across. The staff at the Tweerivieren entrance and restaurant were super friendly. If you've never been there you need to do it, it's an experience!

    I loved the camp site and nature. Game was great. We saw Lions, Leopard and Cubs, Springbok, Blue Wilde Beast, Giraffes, Gemsbok, Marshall Eagle, Pygmy Eagles, Ground Squirrels and many more animals. In two days we drove 495km and enjoyed every moment of it.

    Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a stunning wilderness area located in Southern Africa, straddling the border between South Africa and Botswana. This vast and remote park is known for its breathtaking landscapes, diverse wildlife, and unique camping experiences. Each camp in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park offers a unique experience, from basic wilderness camps to more comfortable rest camps. The park as a whole is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers, with opportunities to spot iconic African species like lions, cheetahs, and desert-adapted wildlife. Some of my best bird photography have been in this park. One of my top 20 places in the world to visit.

    A special place, but Kruger still has my heart! That’s the only reason why Kgalagadi gets 4 stars. Would love to venture further into the Botswana side one day. A perfect camping trip with my dad and brother!

    My favourite game park by far. A place where you really get properly into the wild and close to nature. If I could go here every year, I would. Friendly staff and clean facilities. No crowds and no tar roads. Often see very different animal behaviour here. I love the Kgalagadi.

    The Kgalagadi never disappoints. Beautiful nature and animals. Always fun camping and enjoying special family time. This place makes the best memories.

    (Translated by Google) Fantastically beautiful. Never thought the desert had so much life. Have seen an extremely large number of different birds of prey and predators. (Original) Traumhaft schön. Hätte nie gedacht, dass die Wüste so viel Leben beinhaltet. Haben extrem viele unterschiedliche Greifvögel und Raubtiere gesehen.

    Had a great overnight stay at Twee Rivieren. Accommodation was comfortable. Loved the game park. Took a 4x4 trail over the sand dunes which was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended

    beautiful park full of cats...but no elephants, hippos or rhinos. For my taste the composition is missing and...for someone who is used to be on his own as in Zimbabwe (where I saw in nine days in October 23 times lions!) two more cars at a sighting are already two too much. But still recommendable for all who up for cats an good facilities.

    Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a large wildlife preserve and conservation area in southern Africa. The park straddles the border between South Africa and Botswana and comprises two adjoining national parks: Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa Gemsbok National Park in Botswana The total area of the park is 38,000 square kilometres (15,000 sq mi). Approximately three-quarters of the park lies in Botswana and one-quarter in South Africa. Kgalagadi means "place of thirst." ] In September 2014, more than half of the Botswana portion of the park was sold for gas-fracking.

    This place is extremely hot in the summer ... 45° + so be aware!! Animals are scarce in the heat so I suggest to leave very early, we saw two cheetahs or leopard not sure as they were far away. Lots of different antelope species can be seen as well as a great variety of birds. We also saw jackal. There are lots of bugs at night so take with extra mosquito repellent!!

    Great staff and the place is very clean. The shops are full of things to buy and the animals are not that much. There are loads of varieties lions , cheetahs and honey badgers. This is a great place to come stay and see wild life.

    Beautiful Park. Winter is usually not too cold to even camp and is usually less busy. Summer is extremely hot, but it is also your best oppertunity to see rain in this desert landscape.

  • 5/5 Tiisetso T. 6 months ago on Google
    Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is an unforgettable experience for anyone who loves the outdoors and wildlife. The Kalahari Desert is a vast and majestic place, and the animals that call it home are truly spectacular

  • 5/5 Otto Du P. 4 years ago on Google
    The awesomeness and serenity of nature here far outweighs the badness of the corrugated roads. Ablutions are always clean. Camps sites can be cramped in camp sites where there are not clearly demarcated sites.

  • 4/5 Imtiaz Y. 5 months ago on Google
    Been to Namibia a few times but did not visit Kgalagadi Transfontier Park. Looks amazing and a great place to relax. Will be on my bucket list of holiday venues.

  • 5/5 Michelle K. 6 months ago on Google
    This stunning park is between Botswana and Namibia. Great for 4x4 trails. BUT book well in advance as it is always booked due to its popularity.

  • 5/5 Gaolefufa Shima M. 2 years ago on Google
    Transfontier Park is a dry place congested with antelopes, lions, ants, salty water, sand dunes etc.

  • 5/5 Ben van der m. 2 years ago on Google
    Wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to be in the park after two years of good rain. Sightings are way rarer but it's wonderful to see the Kalahari look like the savannahs. Staff are great, but some of the facilities are pretty dated and needs some work.

  • 5/5 Kesolofetse M. 6 months ago on Google
    You want to be away from the city noise this is the place to be. I enjoyed every moment of it. The service was also perfect thank you so much. It's worth visiting

  • 5/5 Inge F. 6 months ago on Google
    Definitely a stop to add to your road trip plans if you are a nature enthusiast. Amazing biodiversity and great trails! 4 x 4 is definitely needed but Mata Mata Rest camp is a must stay!

  • 5/5 Michelle W. 6 months ago on Google
    The most beautiful park especially with animals in their natural habitat. The ablution and campsites were very neat and tidy will definitely recommend if you want to get away from the city noise👌

  • 5/5 derius n. 1 year ago on Google
    An awesome experience. Well run park. We will be back, many more times I think...

  • 5/5 Tonia S. 2 years ago on Google
    Always an awesome experience! Birds, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, Springbuck and so much more...never a dull moment!

  • 5/5 Joanne R. 2 years ago on Google
    Loved it. Get there early if you are a day visitor, lots to see.

  • 5/5 Marthunis O. 1 year ago on Google
    One of our all time top 3 favourite National park. We have always seen the Lions and it’s the only park we were fortunate enough to have seen Cheetah. You want to sleep inside the park as that earlier entry time makes a big difference in viewing wildlife in their most active times.

  • 5/5 Jo G. 1 year ago on Google
    One of our favourite National Parks. Kgalagadi never disappoints!

  • 5/5 Eu L. 4 years ago on Google
    Wonderful

  • 5/5 Eric W. 4 years ago on Google
    This is one of the greatest nature reserves on earth. It feels so remote (It is). The game viewing may not be the best, but the scenery and stargazing makes up for it.

  • 5/5 Gerhard S. 4 years ago on Google
    As always this arid park is breathtaking, be it the cats, landscape or accommodation. Recent work at camps have made it even better.

  • 5/5 Jonathan P. 4 years ago on Google
    The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, is the most amazing place we have visited. Enjoy the photographs.

  • 4/5 Zubeida M. 4 years ago on Google
    We camped at tweed Rivieren for 2days,therefore we were processed quickly at the border post. Others travel via the park either to Botswana or Namabia. There are a few sheltered sites at the camp,some with electricity. Bathrooms are basic. There are trees for shade. it is a busy campsite as people come and move on quickly. there is a shop with most essentials and a resturant. We saw many birds,squirrels and meerkat at the camp. Game drives were interesting as the terrain looked different all the time. lots of animals (please see pics), we even saw lion and cheetah. The drive would be easier with a 4×4, though we managed in a sedan,reaching most places. Speed limit is 50 and you have to deflate tyres before a game drive. Safety measures,collect and return a permit from the gate for a game drive. It was worth the long trip north. Well worth a visit.

    If the management and facilities on the Botswana side was better, I would have rated the Kgalagadi 5/5.

  • 5/5 David D. 4 years ago on Google

  • 3/5 Nigel B. 4 years ago on Google
    Stark beauty and rugged wilderness defines this park I have visited 3 times. Probably not again. The accommodation is really not up to scratch and even the new chalets are showing signs of falling apart. For me the biggest issue is that half the accommodation have bats living in the thatch, something which should have been sorted out long ago as they are such a nuisance at night. Also the roads are very corrugated and have been graded so low that you can't see anything from a normal car. It is a VERY long drive from anywhere, with temps in the 40s in summer and comms often knocked out by thunderstorms. Saw very little wildlife, very lucky to have one lioness siting in 5 days. Not worth the trip.

    Sunsets _ braai fires _ braai brootjies toasted on the coals _ toasted sticky roasted marshmallows _ decidedly deliciously decadent @ Tweeriveren Camp _ Kgalagadi Game Park _ Kalahari desert

    You leave the stress behind the dunes

  • 4/5 CF T. 4 years ago on Google
    Hot as hell at this time of the year. Good facilities, very well maintained road signs and closely guarded rules to make sure that everyone is safe. Twee Rivieren campsite has the tiniest bit of shade and for that reason we upgraded to a chalet. There was not a chance we would have survived 5 days in the heat of the campsite. The sites at Nossob and Mata-Mata were good - both have pools! Sightings along the routes (not 4x4) were very good. Take tons of warer to drink, more valuable than gold! Well done SAN Parks! KZN Ezemvelo is rubbish by comparison.

  • 5/5 Bilal A. 4 years ago on Google
    The wild nature of the KTP is what makes us return time and again. It's truly a wilderness area

  • 5/5 Gordon C. 4 years ago on Google

  • 5/5 Salomie C. 4 years ago on Google
    Good variety of animals , not over crowded with visitors like some other parks.

  • 4/5 Reynhard Le R. 4 years ago on Google
    Good to excellent, however we couldn't go far as petrol (95 unleaded) could not be given due to "heat?" However the little distance we went was still fruitful. Still want to see more.

  • 5/5 Cairestine L. 4 years ago on Google
