Kieliekrankie Wilderness Camp Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Where the red dunes and scrub fade into infinity and herds of gemsbok, springbok, eland and blue wildebeest follow the seasons, where imposing camel thorn trees provide shade for huge black-mane lions and vantage points for leopard and many raptors…this is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park.

Kgalagadi could be considered a haven for birders, especially those interested in birds of prey. Kgalagadi (SA) has six different camps of varying size, facilities and cost. Three traditional camps that have a basic shopping facility and fuel are situated on the South African side of the Park.

Kgalagadi is the first Park to provide accommodation in three wilderness camps that, with no fences, invite the Kalahari and the tranquillity of Africa right into your room. Due to the high demand for accommodation in Wilderness Camps, three additional camps, with four fully equipped units each, were developed

Kieliekrankie wilderness camp is sunk into a dune, with endless views of the red Kalahari sands. Located in the Twee Rivieren region, this unique self-catering wilderness camp is accessible by passenger vehicles.
