Safaris at Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park are good throughout the year although the best time is probably at the end of the rainy season (March to May).

An amalgamation of the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa and the Gemsbok National Park in Botswana, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park is the largest conservation area in Southern Africa (3,6 million hectares) and bridges both South Africa and Botswana.

28 400km² of the park lie in Botswana and about 9 600km² in South Africa. There are 5 entry gates to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park which fall in 3 different countries.

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park is an ideal self-drive safari destination. Please note that a 4x4 is required to drive on a lot of the roads in the park.

The landscape is semi-desert vegetation, dotted with red sand dunes, sparse vegetation and dry riverbeds making it a photographers delight.

Kgalagadi is also a haven for birding safaris, especially birds of prey.

Predators are the area’s big attraction and include the black maned Kalahari lion, leopard, cheetah, brown and spotted hyena, jackal and wildcat. The dry river beds with its multitude of waterholes show predators and antelopes off at a premium and provide excellent photographic opportunities. Due to its extremely remote location and harsh terrain the park gets relatively few visitors making it ideal for dedicated game-viewers, bird-watchers, photographic opportunities and for guests seeking a desert and solitude feel.

The area is malaria free.

Temperatures vary greatly from -11˚C on very cold winter nights to +42˚C in the summer days. Summer is from November to April and is the hot, wet season. The rains usually fall during dramatic thunderstorms often accompanied by strong winds and dust-storms. The first rains transform the red dunes; covering them with fresh yellow flowers.
