The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is the result of South Africa and Botswana joining forces to conserve a massive area of land comprised of South Africa's Kalahari Gemsbok National Park and Botswana's Gemsbok National Park. This area in the southern Kalahari Desert is a place of minimal human interference where animals are allowed to roam free through the giant red dunes, vast savannah, sparse vegetation, and dry riverbeds; allowing for premium predator and migratory wildlife-viewing.
Follow the migratory movements of herds of springbok, eland, and blue wildebeest, winding along the 4x4 eco-trails. Enjoy some of the best predator-viewing experiences imaginable at the large dry riverbeds of the Auob and Nossob Rivers. The park is one of the best places in Africa to view cheetahs, who stalk through the red sand dunes and fossil river valleys.
The 3,600,000ha park is one of the largest conservation areas of this size left in the world and visitors are given the opportunity to move relatively freely between the international border within its boundaries. The roads through the park are rough but very well kept, making travelling exciting yet relatively easy.
