5 Day Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park Safari

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier park is one of the Top Safari Destination in Africa. This
gem is located in the extreme north of the Northern Cape and stretches up into the
south west of Botswana, running along the border of Namibia.
Known to offer some of the best African wildlife sightings and bird-watching in
South Africa. A visit to The Kgalagadi Transfrontier park means that visitors to the
game park can look forward to exceptional sightings of African game animals. The
wilderness reserve boasts a large population of Lion, Cheetah and Leopard,
offering excellent sightings of predators. It is said that visitors have a better chance
of seeing large cats in this reserve than in the Kruger National Park.
