Hi everyone. I am planning a trip for March to the Kgalagadi. Thinking of staying at Twee Rivieren, Mata Mata and the Kalahari Tented Camp. Trip length of about 10 days. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Is this a good time of the year to visit the park? Sightings any good?

Any time is good to visit Kgalagadi allane :thumbs_up:

I have been twice in March and they were very different.

The first time was very rainy and it was insect heaven and last year was a drought and we saw none!

You get 'cooking' days and days where you see hardly anything, so in 10 days you should get quite lucky.

The Aub river (MM side) is usually very good for cheetah and lion, and the summer migrant birds should still be there.

Go for it. :thumbs_up:

Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

Hi Allane.
Mata Mata and Kalahari Tented Camp are only about 5kms from each other.
I would suggest you choose one or the other.
If you only want to visit the Auob side then try and get into Urikaruus or Kieliekrankie for a night or two as well.

If you are planning a visit in March 2014 then you will have to grab whatever you can get.
Make your bookings and if you are lucky you may still get a cancellation and can amend your booking.
If 2015,then be on the phone as bookings open to get your desired camps.

In the KTP "Even the bad times are good".
As BB says anytime is a good time to visit.
