By using Kalahari Safaris we could visit this famous Park and had a great time. Pieter from Kalahari Safaris showed us the best of Kgalagadi and we learned so much! Thanks Pieter Kalahari Safaris!

By booking a tour via Kalahari safaris day tours we saw more of Kgalagadi than were possible on our own. The hot conditions and bad roads need a local guide to help us spend our holiday. Thanks Pieter Kalahari Safaris day tours.

The answers are correct. Best option is to fly Cape Town, then Upington. Would recommend a 4WD vehicle, though not necessity. There is fuel at the park, both at Twee Rivieren and Mata Mata, but not sure about Nossob.
