Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park straddles the border between South Africa and Botswana and actually comprises two adjoining national parks with a combined total area of 38,000 square kilometers, with three-quarters of the park located in Botswana and one-quarter in South Africa. The western boundary borders with Namibia with access through the Mata-Mata / Welverdiend border post (08:00 – 16:30).
Within the park there are lodges and self-catering rest or tented camps. These are fully serviced establishments and most include amenities such as air-conditioned rooms, shops and swimming pools.
There are also five unfenced wilderness camps in the park providing basic self-catering wooden structures, and overnight visitors must provide their own food, drinking water and firewood. All the wilderness camps are unfenced (and care needs to be taken) and some are only reachable via 4x4 vehicles.
The only fuelling stations and shops inside the park are at Twee Rivieren, Nossob and Mata-Mata.
