Can I drive to KAA within 1 or 2days and back to Nossob, do I need any special permit or passport?

Hi,
I did the route from Nossob to Kaa in around 5 hours, but that means driving close to the limit and not looking for animals to much. Although it is an interresting experience, there isn't much to see at Kaa, and the wildlife is scarce and wild, so you don't see much.
You don't need any permits, as long as you don't leave the park.
Njoy!

Try to book one or two nights at Polentswa, the two nights at Kaa gate and then back to Nossob.

Hi CPTphotographer

According to me you must get a permit for the Botswana side for the days you plan to spend in the botswana side.

This permits are paid for at Twee rivieren.

Can I do this trip alone, meaning one 4x4, (with one person in it! :D )? How did you guys find the game over that way?

You can drive alone from Nossob on the "public" road until you get to the KAA turnoff north of Polentswa, but from there to KAA Gate I would not recommend going it alone. It's a flat "tweespoor" track. We did that same road in April 2009. Very quiet, saw no other vehicles and very limited game. Beautiful scenery though. If you have a breakdown, you might be stuck for a while.

As somebody put it: "the feeling of remoteness is complete".
