In the desert I feel home. In Namibia you can find two deserts the Namib, which is the oldest desert in the world, and the Kgalagadi desert, which is more a savanna with many camelthorn trees.
I had the great possibility to visit both and I spent some days in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Nationalpark which includes areas in South Africa and Botswana, but You can enter it from Namibia, too. This entrance is at the place called Mata Mata.
The park fees is for foreigners much more expensive than for locals, but I wanted to visit the park, so there is not much to negogiate… If you come from Mata Mata I could recommend to spend the first night right infront of the border, there is a camping ground on the Namibian side wich costs only 70 N$ (Rand) and then enter the park the next day, unless you don’t arrive right in the morning. Inside the park I think I paid 280 Rand a night or even more for camping.
Inside the Park it is not allowed to go by bicycle, why? -> You can discover yourself later…
Jerome, where I stayed two nights in Vredenburg came to pick me up and we visited the park together. He was as impressed as me, loves animals and we had an amazing time inside the park. First I was a bit worried because I cycled a long time on my own and was so used to my own decissions. But we made a great team and everything was easygoing! Thanks Jeromo!
But to be honest afterwards it was every single cent worth, because we saw so much animals including Leopards, Cheetas, Lions and a lot of Giraffes, Springbok and Oryx,….
You are not allowed to step out of your car, even at the official restcamps you should be more than careful!
Lots of lions and we had the amazing possibility to watch a copula.
