6 Day Kgalagadi Camping Safari

The Kgalagadi Camping Safari is the perfect way to explore the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.  This safari will start and end in Upington. Upington is the Town of the North in the Northern Cape. The vast open land and the arid environment allow for a unique Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park experience.  The Kgalagadi is well known for its immense semi-desert landscapes and striking red dunes.

Kgalagadi is a great colossal land that covers 38000 km2. The landmass resulted from an amalgamation of the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa and the Gemsbok National Park in Botswana. There are two of the three Kalahari ecotypes in this region. The southwestern part comprises dune veld with unique semi-desert vegetation. The northeastern part consists of the Kalahari thornveld. Salt pans are a mineral sentence for the animals. It is common to see Gemsbok antelopes licking the mineral salts.

Kgalagadi Camping Safari inside the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park has two dry river beds. The Nossob and the Auob river beds. These are mainly dry river beds with an underground water source. Our game drives are along these riverbeds as most animals visit these areas for their first food and water source. It is not uncommon to find the predators lurking along these riverbeds to complete a successful hunt.

The river beds connect with two dune roads. These River Beds make an ideal game drive route between the dunes and often have predators crossing over the dune belt to reach the river beds. Our Kgalagadi Camping Safari will be early morning departures and late afternoon game drives. Every traveller will have a window seat.

We enjoy preparing meals open fires, whilst catering for any special dietary requirements, and we believe in whole meals. It is best to make your reservations well in advance. Our visit to the Kalahari comes to an end at a slow pace. We take a leisurely pace on our safaris. Join our team this season on a Kgalagadi Camping Safari.
