Hi all,

I am very sorry to perhaps ask an obvious question. Our 6 nights KTP are booked (end of august/ start of september)! I have a.o. booked a night at 2r, MM and Nossob in order to do some of the offered activities. I like selfdrives but walking and night drives just add to the experience so much. Its a whole different interaction (and i want it all). I am a little bit confused however.

The website says: Morning and sunset drives, as well as morning walks, are available at Twee Rivieren, Nossob, Mata-Mata and the Kalahari Tented Camp; enquiries can be made at the reception desks.

Earlier, Kgalagadi Guru wrote:

Night Drive R 180,00 (R 90,00) 2
Midnight Drive R 180,00 (R 90,00) 3 Adults
Nossb 4x4 Route R 2 485,00 Per Vehicle
!Xerry Wilderness Trail R 1 060,00 2


Enquiries have allready told me that the !Xerry trail no long runs. But have the afternoon walks, night and midnightdrives been cancelled also? That would be very dissapointing. Could anyone enlighten me?

Thanks once again!

Max

Hi maxpower
I know that Kgalagadi Guru has recently left the park, but I am sure that the morning walks and evening game drives will still be happening. There are staff in place, Robert at TR and Melissa in Nossob, who I am sure are still there and will be taking out tourists. I stand to be corrected but I see no reason why they should have stopped

In Feb of this year, there were night drives going from TR and Nossob. We stayed at KTC and inquired about drives from MM, but were told there were none because there was no one available to do it - this was the same for all of our 3 nights at KTC. We had heard this from others as well. Can't comment on the walks, don't know. Sounds like if they have people available, they go?? The park is great, you will love it.

Hi MaxPower

We were there 1st week of July and they weren't offering walks at any of the camps.

There were only sunset drives on offer from TR. Nothing at all from MM, and we didn't ask in Nossob. It might just be a temporary lull due to (possibly) lower staff levels... Or maybe it was to do with the time of year (it was v v cold at night).

Perhaps give TR reception a quick call (or email) and ask what activities they're offering at the moment from each camp.
