Thanx for the reference to http://www.reddune.info/
. . . and big welcome to the Forum ! I suppose that the origional purpose of the aforementioned link was simply for wouldbe visitors, like yourselves, to acquaint themselves as to what to expect . . . and to build your planning arround such a basis of pictorial facts.
Suppose there will always be 'courses for horses' . . . some of us simply love the slightly confined space of a chalet within a wilderness camp scenario . . . whilest others like ourselves, do prefer the bigger camps where you can move arround the camp more freely . . . to be able to pick up some good conversation/ frienships with other visitors arround a fire at sunset . . . with the availability of the shop, the hide and game drives, as addisional commodities.
Your first time exposure to the KTP will bring a totally new perspective for future visits that is sure to follow in time to come. Be rest assured , that your trip will effectively start the very second that your booking has been confirmed . . . because planning a trip to the Kgalagadi, is as good as being there already !
You must also not disregard the fact that starting your trip from Cape Town is a very good option, with a nice scenic road at least for the first 350 kms . . . . and should you return to Cape Town from the Kgalagadi via Mata Mata . . you will have the wonderfull options of seeing the southern part of Namibia, including the
Quiver Tree Forrest at Keetmanshoop, SeeHeim, the Fish River Canyon and the famous Flowers of Namakwaland during September and October !
