Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is definitely my favorite game reserve in South Africa. In my honest opinion, it offers some of the very best photo opportunities.

It is well known for it's raptures, Kalahari lions, Oryx, Springbuck and many other animals and bird life. What you definitely won't find in Kgalagadi, are elephants, hippos, buffaloes and Impalas. Kgalagadi is also well known for red sand dunes, beautiful landscapes and spectacular sunsets.

A small group of Blouwildebeest. Please note how they lay in a circle and everyone is looking in a different direction. This is to look out for predators and a way to try and protect themselves.
