Anyone else here going to be there next week?


Unfortunately not that lucky, but you must enjoy the trip and try a visit to Augrabies. I heard on the news today that Vaaldam and Bloemhofdam nearly full and sluice gates will be opened on Sunday. That means more water in the Orange. :wink:

After 6 months since the last trip, I have withdrawal symptoms from KTP so got on-line and booked my next trip.

I know it is bloody hot in Dec but my first trip was in Nov and I saw a lot of game. So the booking is as follows:

29th Nov: TR 1night
30th Nov: NO 3 nights
3rd Dec: GH 2 nights
5th Dec: MM 3 nights
8th Dec: UR 6 nights

I am skipping KTC given I managed to get the River Front Chalet at MM and also skipping BP as not much game although I love the 4X4 drive. Couldn't get GR. Didn't book KK as prefer the longer stay at UR.

What do people think about the itinerary?

Hi Katanga,
the itinerary is fine, love the 6 nights at UR!
It can be hot, but the humidity is usually very low. We've been there in Nov and Feb.
This year it's in Dec, your last night on 8th is out 1st night in 2R. Going with a caravan, so only 2R for us.

I just booked 2 nights at the Gorge chalet in Augrabies. :D
It was available and thought why NOT start a Kgalagadi trip here?
So counting the days.
