of the Kalahari
Like all deserts, the Kalahari with its orange-red dune ranges leaves a deep impression on the visitor. The clear, intense colours, the stillness and expanse of this landscape, and the special animal and plant world exert an almost magical attraction. Particularly fascinating is the change the desert undergoes after a thunderstorm, when it becomes a colourful sea of wildflowers within a few hours, and large herds of wildebeest, springboks and oryx antelopes stroll through the riverbeds.
The park is known to be a favourite destination for lion admirers. The big cats are quite numerous and easy to watch, as they lie in wait for prey on a dune, seeking the shade under one of the sparse trees or stalking a quarry. Therefore, renowned animal photographers from all over the world are frequent visitors to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
Don't be put off by the 1,200 km long drive from Cape Town to the remote National Park in the north-west of South Africa, since this unique desert experience is worth it.
