Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a vast wildlife preserve in the Kalahari Desert region of Botswana and South Africa, bordering Namibia to the west. It’s characterized by red dunes and dry rivers. Wildlife includes migrating herds of wildebeest and springbok, plus predators like raptors and black-maned Kalahari lions. Various lodges and wildnerness camps offer game-viewing drives and guided walks with park rangers.
Things to do
Game Drives
Game Drives
Enjoy a fantastic sunset game drive on the pan and an after-dinner drive to explore some of the night creatures the Kalahari has to offer.

Sunset pan drive and dune walk to ‘listen’ to the sun set over the Kalahari with an early evening game drive back to the lodge.

After-dinner night drive, with the accompanying sounds of barking geckos, insect shrills, and larger animal calls to break the silence.

Guided Dune Walk
Guided Dune Walk
Set out at day-break with the guides and Bushman trackers to walk through the dunes as you learn all about your natural surroundings. You will be shown how to identify animal spoor, birds, trees and plants, and discuss their medicinal uses. You’ll return to the Lodge in time for a hearty brunch made by the local Mier ladies. The length of the walk, and distance you cover, depends on the fitness and interest of the guests.
Visit the Bushman Craft Village
Visit the Bushman Craft Village
Take a walk to our recreated cultural village and see the Busman crafters at work. You may join young Bushmen demonstrating their traditional games and purchase traditional crafts hanging from the branches of the tree under which the crafters sit at work.  These crafters also sell their goods at the Lodge curio shop.
Night really falls here, nearly totally free from pollution, including light pollution, natural atmospheric pollution and man-made pollution. On the SQM (or Sky Quality Meter, pronounced ‘squim’) scale of darkness, with 22 being as unadulteratedly dark as you can get, the Kalahari measures 21.9.
