The Kgalagadi “Place of Thirst” is a vast conservation area spanning 38 000 square kilometers and is one of the most extensive conservation areas in the world 1. The park is located in the Kalahari Desert, which is known for its unique and captivating landscape. The park’s red-gold dunes extend as far as the eye can see, dotted with shrubbery, wispy white grasses, and frequent pockets of thorn trees, providing welcome shelter for the various fauna and flora living within the park’s confines.

Tour text information 

The Kgalagadi is famous for its big black-maned lions of the Kalahari and sightings of the striking Gemsbok (Oryx). The park also hosts numerous other predators, which are commonly sighted, including leopards, cheetahs, wild dog, bat-eared fox, black-backed jackal, and hyenas (brown and spotted). The park’s harsh environment has led to fascinating adaptations in the area’s animal residents, making it an ideal destination for wildlife enthusiasts

The Kgalagadi is also known for its red dunes, star-filled skies, and fabulous sightings of big game like leopards, cheetahs, and gemsbok. The vast landscape and enormous Kalahari lions make it a unique and unforgettable experience.

If you’re looking for a wilderness ‘fix’ that’s Prozac for the soul, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is the perfect destination.

 

We will spend 7 nights in the breathtaking Mabuasehube area.

 

Mabuasehube lies on the Botswana side of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The name means "red earth," and it is derived from the red Kalahari sand.The appeal of Mabuasehube is the "road less traveled," and after the rains, the pans fill with water, providing a fantastic animal and nature experience. The ideal track for getting away from the renowned Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and exploring the untamed side of the Kalahari.
