Thank you Sandy and Barrels.
I have feared. So our travel partners must take CH2. :roll:

Hi Pascalinah,

There are actually 3 x CH3 chalets at Nossob of which 2 are accessible to mobility challenged visitors.

You will find the detail availability in the link that I have posted in my original post :thumbs_up: .
Always be humble and understanding

Hi Barryels,

thank you very much. :gflower: I have got one CH3 for the 23.february 2017. I think the other 2 chalets for mobility challenged visitors are not to booking online. They are not to book at the link. I'll try to get a second chalet over phone or by email.

Kind regards
Pascalinah

The units for mobility challenged (in all parks) are only released to the general public one month before the date - in other words they are retained for those who need them until one month before the date.

minettest - with regards to the best time to visit KTP - all I can say is any time is great! The park has become extremely popular, so obtaining a booking is the first thing to do. Some months are fully-booked (even camping) within minutes of the bookings opening!!

In the winter months daytime temperatures can be quite pleasant but the nighttime temperatures can be extremely low - minus 10 deg C is not unheard of. Obviously the summer months can have very high daytime temperatures - over 40 deg C.

We have been in May, June and October and have had good trips. We had several cold nights during the June trip, but not as cold as it can be.

Good Day All. I am planning my first trip to Kgalagadi and would a bit of advice on the below:
- I have 7 days in the Park, where would it be best to book? Bear in mind that i will be camping so I wouldnt want to spend too much time with the gear when i can be out viewing. However, I wouldnt mind switching camps twice ( so can stay at 3 camps).
- is it possible to do the above route without a 4x4. I might be travelling in a Hyundai H1 or similar

Hi MNJ001,

If you are camping you can only book at the 3 main camps on the SA side. Or you could try for a camping spot on the Botswana side???

If you are only staying on the SA side, I would book one night Twee Riviere, 3 Nights Mata Mata and 3 Nights Nossob.

I'm not sure how far you will be traveling on your arrival and departure days. If it's a long way maybe book the first and last days in Twee Riviere and then only 2 nights Mata Mata and 3 nights Nossob.

It's all doable with a 4X2.

Enjoy your trip!! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
