The Kgalagadi is a vast colossal land that covers 38 000km2 which was the result of an amalgamation of the Kalahari Gemsbok Park in South Africa and the Kalahari Gemsbok Park in Botswana. Two of the three Kalahari eco types are found here. The south western part comprises duneveld with its unique semi–desert vegetation and the north eastern part comprises of the Kalahari thornveld. The area also incorporates salt pans which in turn play an important role in the grazing and life patterns of the animals. The large mammals and especially the predators like the black maned lion, leopard, cheetah, brown and spotted hyena along with honey badgers, jackals and smaller genets and mongooses are all highlights of the Kgalagadi. To the glorious collection of larger animals one can add the mischievous surricates, ground squirrels (shading themselves with their tales), luminous ground agamas and the barking geckos. One cannot forget the thousands of sociable weavers, lappet faced vultures, elegant bateleur eagles, the tiny pygmy falcon and swooping martial eagles and secretary birds. Put all these wonderful creatures between red sand dunes and dry river beds with majestic camel thorn and Sheppard trees filled with bushman tall grass and you get the magic of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

The three main camps are Mata–Mata, Nossob and Twee Rivieren. You have the basic need facilities at all three main camps with waterholes close to the campsites that provide a quench for the thirsty semi desert dwellers. The magic of the Kalahari lies in the colours of this semi desert reserve along with the friendly people of the Kalahari.
