I had to take a few of the staff who doesn’t really get out to see so much water at Samevloeiing and I took the SO and Stefan with since he is a Kalahari Boy.

Will be visiting Kgalagadi for the first time in May. Staying at Nossob, Gharagab, Bitterpan and Kalahari Tent Camp. What temperatures can we expect at this time of the year? I really know very little about this part of the country and am very excited to expore and find out more. Consequently if you have any additional information, hints and tips that will assist and make our stay memorable please forward to me. From the comments on the forum we are certainly in for a very different experience! Thanks.

Hello neecie,

I'm sure you will love KTP -- it's very different. Your itinerary looks good too -- the Gharagab - Bitterpan leg maybe a bit long, dependingon the roads. I take it you'll be driving a 4X4 ?

The weather should be cool to cold at night and warm during the day -- but this is KTP so anything could happen :lol:

You will need to take all your food, water, etc with you too. there is a small shop at Nossob -- just make sure you have cash money in case the line is not working for cr card transactions. And you'll need cash for fuel for the same reason.

Anything else you want to know -- just ask :lol: And enjoy your trip :thumbs_up:
