The fabulous Cubitje the thread has got me wondering...
Do people have favourite spots in KTP? Where is absolutely not to be missed?
What's yours and why? Any photographic evidence?
I'll be taking notes... only 8 months to go!

Kgalagadi 2015:
June 29th & 30th Twee Rivieren
July 1st & 2nd Mata Mata
3rd & 4th Urikaruus
5th & 6th Nossob
7th Kieliekrankie

July 9th-14th (Main camp)

Counting down already!!!

The waterholes in the Northern Auob, between Mata Mata and Urikaruus are my favourites as the roads do not have high sand banks and that allows for better photo opportunities. The trees in that area are also beautiful and often have birds of Prey. Cubitjie Quap is also great because one can get close to the action. My sentimental favourite is Dalkieth as I saw a mother and two young Cheetahs catch three Springbok lambs in one day in February 1989. The Auob is great for Cheetah activity.

Montrose is my favorite.

Not so much because of great photo opportunities, but because this is where we usually get Miera (my favorite leopard) and were we have had some great other sightings.
