Well... as you will have to pass next to Kanagass, watch carefully in the big tree next to the water hole, home of a wonderful female leopard ( we named her Kana !).

Hi,bigal
It's a good decision to visit Gharagab.We have been there in October 08
for 2 nights and did really like it.It's a peaceful camp and gameviewing can
also be very quiet.We were lucky to see the lioness in the afternoon.

The next morning,we saw this herd of hartbeests there.

That's a look from the tower in the morning.

You can really relax there and load your energy and power!

Hi All, can anyone tell me what to expect at Gharagab as I will be spending three nights there in July. Some photographs would also be welcome.It is a pity that there is only a one way road/track to and from the camp. How far is a round trip on that road, my rough calculations put it at aprox 100km?

Does that mean you have to do the loop every time you leave camp?

That loop is a very nice road to travel because it is so quiet (no other tourist) …and we have had some very nice sightings on it.

Thanks Ingrid, some nice photo's. Does anyone know how the game in the area is now that (so i hear) the water is piped from another source? No longer so salty I believe.

Hi

We pretty much stayed in the camp when we were there - mainly because we had a pride of lions there the whole time!

You can do a short loop to waterhole and back (which we did a few times as well.

It is a great camp. Just take lots of water. It is very brakish there. You will even need bottled water for cooking.

See you

Hi Prof,
Thanks for the info. I am pleased to hear that we can at least drive to the nearby waterhole and back without having to travel the entire loop. What is the bird life like at this waterhole? Also is it worth travelling to the waterholes near grootkolk, even though it is far!

In Dec 09 will be my first visit to KTP. I booked three nights in Gharagab camp. I read, that a check in at Nossob is necessary. Is that really true ?
I can't do that, because I will arrive directly from Kaa Gate. Is it possible to drive straight to the camp and show my booking confirmation ?

Thanks for your advice.

Alfred

Alfred,

I'm sure it won't be a problem to go directly to Gharagab. They are in radio communication with Nossob, so if need be can confirm your arrival with them. You can always check in when you head south.
