Nossob camp's gate must be kept closed all the time to keep the jackals out of the camp. No problem -- when you get there, if there is no-one at the gate, just get out and open it -- making sure to close it behind you.

Holiday time is getting closer , so I also keep an eye on the Nossob webcam. However, after a few weeks of doing that, the count comes up to wildebeest, birdies, wildebeest, birdies. Or did I miss something(s)?
I am planning to visit the Kgalagadi in September and just want to get some info….rumor has it that game viewing around Nossob is not that great can anyone confirm or deny this..will it be worthwhile to stay more than two nights in Nossob??

When we were in Nossob in September, Francois took us for a night drive and we commend him for his knowledge. He made it really interesting and we saw animals and birds we would never have know were there, had we been alone - fat chance! During the day we had watched him struggling to drain the Nossob waterhole, knee-deep in mud, and he enlightened us on the necessity for this when we met him. Thanks Francois! Sorry we are so late in telling you how much we enjoyed our drive.

Hi expat We met Francois last April and also found him to be a big asset to KTP Please do tell us...why was it neccessary to drain the waterhole? Is it because it is a man-made waterhole and algae etc builds up.. I'm interested to know. thanks so much
