Overnight hides in Kgalagadi.

Is there any overnight hides in Kgalagadi like in Kruger? If not why not or will there ever be overnight hides?

Would you like overnight hides in Kgalagadi and if the answer is yes, why?

You could take your blanket and go over night in the Mata Mata hide.......... :whistle:

But you'll have to sit and sleep or try and sleep on those hard benches......... :doh:

Should be interesting to hear if there are any plans for overnight hides in Kgalagadi.............. :hmz:

I have spent long nights and late hours in the Nossob hide. I might as well have taken my bedding......

Picnic, are you acting as a front-man now? I know there were plans for something like this at Samevloeïng, but probably ditched. My preference would be no change - most of the camps provide excellent wild experiences already.
