We stayed at Gharahab for 2 nights in October. We had 3/4 of the Accomadation Units. The waterhole was filled at 5pm, almost emptied overnight by 6am. We found this disappointing and were told there was a problem with the water tanks. On the first night we ate inside, the wind had gotten up. Next morning we were told we'd... More

It is a long long way to drive from Nossob camp ( where you check in) to Gharagab wilderness camp. Make sure your car is 4x4 and in good condition as well as fueled up as there is no gas other than in Nossob. We really enjoyed our one night stay at Gharagab and I liked the lay-out of the... More

Gharagab is the remotest accommodation in KTP (beside camping on the Botswana side). As for the other Wilderness Camps in KTP it has 4 units. This was our third visit to that place. Full self caitering chalets looking onto a waterhole. We saw Lion, Brown Hyena, Eland and more. Accesible only by 4x4 (30 km over the dunes to reach... More

We stayed 4 nights over Christmas at Gharagab and it was the perfect place to be. Gharagab is a wilderness camp and you are exposed to the wild. The accommodation is fairly rustic but that is one if the things we liked about it. It rained two of the days so the waterhole wasn't that busy. We did see some... More

I stayed here in February, 2013 during my visit to Kgalagadi. (I also stayed at Bitterpan, Grootkolk, and Kalahari Tented Camp, as well as the three rest camps.) This may have been my favorite. There are only four units. The camp is reached by 4X4 trail. The route in is narrow, but not difficult. The outbound route is a bit... More

We stayed at Kalahari tented camp, Nossob and Gharagab on our trip and this was by far my favourite camp. It's a heck of a long treacherous drive to get there (definitely not suitable for a 2x4 as the road is very sandy in places and you need good ground clearance to get over the dunes) but the drive is...
