Kgalagadi National Park

Kgalagadi National Park

Kgalagadi National Park or the Transfrontier Park is one of the best wildlife destinations in the Northern Cape. The Kalahari can be a destination on the route towards The Growcery Camp and Richtersveld National Park. This Kgalagadi Park is one of the first cross-border conservation initiative parks in South Africa. The vast open Kalahari spreads over Namibia, Botswana and South Africa.

The red sand dunes are unique to the Kgalalagdi National Park.  The Kalahari is rich in minerals and metals. The red dune colour is a direct result of the Iron you find in the soil. The Iron is oxidising, and this causes the red colour of the Kalahari.

The Kgalagadi National Park is known for a large number of predators in the park. The most common predators are lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. The Abundance of bird life makes this a bird watchers paradise. The Kgalagadi Park is an excellent photographic destination.
