Transfrontier Park straddles the border between Botswana
and South Africa
and covers an absolutely enormous 37,000 square kilometres.
The part of the reserve which lies to the south of the border may only equate to a quarter of the land surface, but it is rather more accessible and has far more visitor facilities. But that is not to say that this is an easy place to get to ... it is a long, hard and hot slog up to the park gate and beyond. Those who do make it this far are rewarded with a real sense of wilderness, even desolation and although wildlife is naturally thin on the ground, it can be most satisfying.
Self-sufficient travellers with proper safari vehicles can head to very nice smaller facilities such as Bitterpan Camp
and Gharagab Camp
Less well equipped visitors are restricted to larger facilities at Nossob Restcamp
, Mata Mata Restcamp
, Twee Rivieren Restcamp
and the rather interesting Xaus Lodge
