The wonders of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Posted by Scott Ramsay on 7 September 2011

We’re now into our second week in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and although we haven’t seen any lions (everyone else seems to have), we’ve been really inspired by everything else here, such as the Kgalagadi’s huge expanse, the herds of springbok and wildebeest and gemsbok, camping under the stars at Nossob, Mata Mata and Twee Rivieren and the opportunity to simply dream and hope. We’ve seen some pretty incredible wildlife as well: a secretary bird catching and eating a snake, a bataleur eagle drinking at a waterhole, two martial eagles a few metres from our car … there’s no mistaking the wonder of this place.
