Where the red dunes and scrub fade into infinity and herds of gemsbok, springbok, eland and blue wildebeest follow the seasons, where imposing camel thorn trees provide shade for huge black-mane lions and vantage points for leopard and many raptors... this is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
Twee Rivieren is the Park’s largest rest camp and administrative headquarters. It is situated on the banks of the Dry Nossob Riverbed. Activities and facilities are diverse, as are the animals and plants found both within the camp and in the surrounding areas. Twee Rivieren has a reception, shop, fuel, restaurant, information centre and swimming pool. This is the only camp with 24-hour electricity and cell phone reception. Read more...

Unleaded fuel problem at the Park
Twee Rivieren , Mata Mata and Nossob have a problem dispensing unleaded fuel during the heat of the day.The ULP heats up and it forms airpockets . As soon as the system detects these , it automatically shuts the system down and relays the fuel back into the tank. We are able to dispense fuel in the mornings when it is still cool but as soon as temperature rises , the ULP tanks shut down.
We suggest filling up between 07h00 – 10h00. May we also suggest filling up at Ashkam before entering at Twee Rivieren . Because of the consistency of Diesel , this does not occur and Diesel is available throughout the day .
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
