A guided self-drive overland tour through the Kalahari region and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

Trip Overview

Experience a true sense of stillness and the mystique of the Kalahari. On this specially designed tour we explore the beauty of the awe-inspiring Kalahari and the raw grandeur of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. 


Look forward to spectacular game viewing with a chance to encounter the famed black maned lions and get up close with a mob of meerkats. Pack your camera and binoculars because this region is home to 40 raptor and vulture species making it a prime birding location.

The route includes a combination of rustic and established campsites. We set up camp amidst the red dunes and camel thorn trees, travel off the beaten track to camp on a 10 000 ha pan and also camp at Twee Rivieren rest camp within the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. 

This trip is ideal for people who prefer to travel at a leisurely pace, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts or anyone keen to explore the rustic gems of the Kalahari. 

There is nothing like feeling the red sand between your toes and giving yourself the chance to breathe. Take in the beauty of the sun-drenched Kalahari and let Endless Africa guide you to your next unforgettable adventure.

Route Description

The trip starts in the small oasis of Askham in the Northern Cape. We setup camp between the red dunes and camelthorn trees.  From Askham we hit the tar north towards the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. All roads within the park are gravel or sand and guests are welcome to explore on their own time and pace.  As we exit the park we travel south towards the Rietfontein region, the roads will include gravel, tar, sand and pans.   

The majority of this route is driven on gravel roads. This route is suitable for any 4×4’s including 4×4 trailers and 4×4 bush caravans. If you are not towing, a 4×2 vehicle with diff-lock will also be suitable for this trip.
