KGALAGADI TRANSFRONTIER PARK

Grassland and red sand dunes

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

For a different type of wildlife experience, many tourists head west to the least populated part of South Africa, where the famous Kalahari Desert or, as it is now known, the Kgalagadi, starts. One of the jewels of the desert, it is a beautiful wilderness of grasslands and red sand dunes protected by the cross border reserve between South Africa and Botswana.

The South African part of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park used to be known as the Kalahari Gemsbok Park. The park is renowned for its predator and raptor viewing, and not surprisingly, its gemsbok or oryx; the elegant grey, black and white antelope with their rapier-like horns.

Best time to visit Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

The best time to visit Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is best at the end of the rains, from March till May when animals congregate around the river beds. This makes for easier sightings. However, Kgalagadi gets extremely hot during summer so the cooler winter months (May to September) are the most pleasant.
