Hi Nomrod,

Although there is a topic with discussions on Nossob camp Here, I will forward your question to SANParks PR for the latest information :thumbs_up: .

Dear Nimrod,

I'm sure you can't wait till April to experience the bliss that only Kgalagadi can offer. :D
Unfortunately we don't have a system in place whereby guests can secure a campsite - we operate on a first come first serve basis only.
Make sure you drive very early from TR to get the best spot available on that day.

Here is a map of the camping site for easy reference:

Regards,
Nadia

Interesting.....so there are 25 official campsites at Nossob? I've always been told emphatically that there are only 20, including the gatecrasher's sites.

Only 20 with power and the rest reserved for emergency in case people arrive late from Mabua.

Nimrod,

All the sites are nice and difficult to say before the time. The unmarked ones are without power. Sunset is behind the swimming pool or airplane hanger depending on the time of the year.

No 20 and 19 lots of shade, but the lowest point and gets easily flooded after a storm. Just pick when you arrive keeping in mind where you will get the best shade and whats the most convenient.

The odd thing is, Son Godin, the so called emergency sites are the first ones to be occupied, no power and all!? I've always looked at those as the best sites with the ones towards the pool under shadecloth as secondary.
