Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a merger of Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa and Gemsbok National Park in Botswana. Most tourism happens on the South Africa side, which has excellent facilities. The Botswana side only has very basic campsites.

The red sand dunes in the inhospitable desert form a magnificent backdrop for wildlife viewing and photography.

We travelled up to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park from Cape Town in November 2020 in the Land Rover Defender. We stopped over night in Calvinia at the Tarantula Guest House to break up the trip.

Within the Park we stayed at Twee Rivieren, Mata Mata and the awesome Kalahari Tented Camp.
