I've only been to KTP three times (1992, 2007, 2010), but I've stayed in all of the camps except for Bitterpan and Gharagab (because I travel by sedan, a 4x4 is too costly for this solo traveler). My favourite KTP camp is Grootkolk, not so much for the wealth of sightings but for the special ambience of the place. I also love the remoteness of Union's End, have now been there seven times — once in 1992, when it was a lengthy trek from Nossob, and three visits in both 2007 and 2010. So ...

TR x3
KK
Urikaruus x2
KTC
MM
Nossob x3
Grootkolk x2

Each camp has it's own caracter. I have stayed in the following camps:
1) Twee Rivieren
2) Nossob
3) Mata Mata
4) Urikaruus :clap:
5) Kalahari tented camp
6) Kielie Krankie
7) Bitterpan

My favourite was Urikaruus but they are all nice in their own way.

Will be back again on the 12th Feb. :cam: When you going back Caracal?
