A must for nature lovers!

Kgalagadi is a unique destination, a game park in a arid region. The wildlife is spectacular, albight the absence of elephants, crocodiles and hippos. Therefore there are stunning sightings of cats. The road infrastructure is fair and the camps have everything you need - from accommodation to food.

The park is excellent for photographing the animals and birds, especially the big cats.

The park offers so much in terms of very often a exclusive opportunity to be with wild game, be it the many different antelope species found there or some of the big cats like, cheetah, leopard and lion. Another plus is the fact that one gets quite close to the animals since most are very tamed. Then if one is real lucky, a kill by a predator is often seen in the park by visitors, so for photography, it's excellent. There are two points in my view that needs attention, namely the bad condition of the gravel roads and lately also the pile-up of vehicles at a "cat-sighting" that seems to occur more-and-more.

Never have I seen so many lion, leopard or cheetah than on my trip here. The wildlife was dramatically different to other Parks I'd visited - so a welcome change. But the roads are hellish - so take a 4x4.

The accommodation (campsite) in the park was very clean and well taken care of. We heard lions roaring near us all night one night which was very exciting. You really know that you are out in the wilderness. We saw lots of variety of animals and birds.

A place for raptors and badgers, black maned lions and majestic sunsets. The camps have a particular (Botswana) feeling to them with hard wood fires, sanded sites, 4x4 vehicles and ground squirrels chasing about. Great place, stay at least a week.

Different experience, no Rhinos or Elephants, but lots of animals you don't see that often in the other areas. Went there a few years back, maybe today it's a little bit more crowded since they have the tarred road now.

Rich wildlife experience in stunning wilderness setting - a quite unique unspoilt location.

Wildlife experiences were outstanding including sightings of rare mammals such as the Aardvark, Wild Cat, Brown Hyena, Bat-eared Fox, African Hedgehog and an abundance of birds. This was very much due to the knowledge and expertise of our wonderful Naturetrek naturalists whose spotting skills, knowledge and experience greatly enriched the trip. Local guides at !xaus Lodge where we stayed were equally good. It was a privilege to stay in such a remote, 'close to nature' environment.

This is one of South Africa's top parks. Not only are there vast herds of grazers, there are a large number of predators. One would be unlucky not to see one of lion, cheetah or leopard on a visit. It is a large park, with a wide variety of camps and accommodations, of high quality.

Animal sightings were tremendous - Gemsbok. Not crammed with people, rolling thunderous storm that hit the plains - incredible.
