Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park
Africa's first formally declared trans-border conservation area - the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (KTP) on the border of South Africa and Botswana - was officially launched on May 12, 2000 by South African President Thabo Mbeki and Botswana President Festus Mogae.

The park caters for all kinds of tourists including those who want to take the city to the wilderness and those who want to escape from city life to the wilderness.

Established Camps
There are three well-equipped camps on the South African side, namely Twee Rivieren, Nossob and Mata Mata.  There is even a restaurant at Twee Rivieren,  Each camp has a small shop with food, ice and drinks.  Fuel is available at all three camps as well.  These camps offer night drives in the park.  Apart from these there are also bush camps, which are tented camps on stilts and wooden decks and all are in lovely locations. These camps offer more exclusivity than the other three larger camps.  Advance bookings are necessar to stay at any of the camps.

Self Camping Campsites
There are numerous campsites on the Botswana side and a few on the South Africa side.  Some are A-frame shelters on slabs and some are simply ground camping sites.  Some have water (when the pumps are working) and some do not. Campers should bring drinking water, as the water at any of the pumps is too saline to drink.

Wildlife
The pans are artificial watering points that attract gemsbok, springbok, hartebeest, eland and numerous other Kalahari species. Brown hyenas and jackals are abundant and the famous black-maned Kalahari lions are about.  The best place to see the large cats (lion, leopard and cheetah) is in the Nossob Valley.

Birds
There are a huge number of birds of prey in the Kgalagadi. Black-chested Snake-eagles are abundant, as are Pale Chanting Goshawks. Other species include Gabar Goshawks, Lanner Falcons and Verreaux's Eagle-owl. Another special here is the Sociable Weaver nests, where thousands of birds nest together, each pair with its own private entrance to the huge community nest, The Pygmy Falcon is almost exclusively associated with these nests and they also nest within in their own separate "compartment."  Kori Bustards, Northern Black Korhaans, and Ostrich are also abundant.

Conservation and Tourism in Botswana
The National Parks and Reserves in Botswana are a haven for wildlife and photographic safaris. Outside of the sanctuary of the reserves, Botswana is divided into parcels of land commonly referred to as concessions. Those in the Ngamiland District, which inlcudes the Okavango Delta and Linyanti / Selinda reserves, are identified by codes beginning with 'NG' and numbered NG1 to NG51.  Read more...
