Description:

A Visit to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

Summary / Notes:

A visit to what used to be the Kalahari Gemsbok Park, (in May 2000 it was renamed the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park), is alwaysrnworthwhile. Not necessarily worthwhile in the sense of comparison to the large numbers of game one sees in, for example, the Etosha National Park, but it is simply special because it is so different and mainly because of the most beautiful, black-maned lions that can be seen there. For us the Kalahari was always quality above quantity and this time it proved to be no different. And then of course there are the birds; for us birders a special delight. 264 bird species have been recorded in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. However only a mere 78 species are resident, while 16 are seasonal and 18 are nomadic. The majority, i.e. the remaining 152 species are vagrants and irregular visitors to the Park. The park is renowned for the many raptors that are usually seen and of the 74 species we recorded during our six day stay, 25% were raptors!
