Guided Tour 1 – 9 Days – Kgalagadi – Etosha Tour

Kgalagadi / Etosha / Windhoek

Detailed Program

Day 1

Upington – Kgalagadi Trans Frontier Park
Depart from Upington to the largest camp at Twee Rivieren. En route we stop at the Khomani San.

Afternoon game drive in this 37 000 square km park. Game such as gemsbok, springbok, eland, giraffe, blue wildebeest and red hartebeest roam the sparsely vegetated red sand dunes and the dry river valleys of the Nossob and Auob where a variety of acacia species thrive.

The Park is well known for good sightings of lion, leopard and cheetah and spotted – and brown hyena are common residents. Because of an abundance of prey in the form of mice, whistling rats, birds and insects, smaller predators thrive in the park. The park is home to caracal, honey badger, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, cape fox, African wildcat, mongoose and the ever-popular suricate (meerkat).

Kgalagadi is a bird watcher’s paradise with more than 300 species recorded including at least 20 larger raptor species. The world’s heaviest flying bird can be seen regularly. Optional night drive with rangers highly recommended.
