For some unidentifiable reason, we found this to be the best of our three very nice sets of accommodations in Kgalagadi. This was a great place to spend our last evening, as it is only 3 km from Mata Mata gate, yet we still had the sense of being in the wilderness. The sleeping quarters and kitchen are in separate...

15 architecturally interesting safari tent with some sandbag walls. One side of the tent has shower and toilet off to each side, and basin in the middle. There is no door between the basin and the bedroom, so nowhere to get dressed in private if that is necessary. The shower drain was blocked on our two night stay, which meant... More

We spent only one night here, but we should have stayed longer - the accomodation is great, great kitchen and braai area and you feel really safe, although it is an unfenced camp. We stayed at Tent 2 and by mere chance we got 3 lions around 10 pm just goingpassing by the waterhole. The waterhole is small and a... More

We stayed 2 nights their. Lovely rooms with a seperate kitchen. This campsite is unfenced. The first day a Lion came walking down the river maybe 100 meters in front of us. One of the best camps to stay in Kgalagadi

We unfortunately only spent 2 nights in the spacious, well designed tented camp which overlooks a waterhole in the Auob River. We stayed in Tents 9 and 10 with spectacular views of the waterhole. Gert the Camp manager, most helpful and professional. Birdlife and Wildlife around the camp excellent. A wonderful location. We will be back.

We stayed in two units (5 and 6 ) . The units are spacious , well designed and serviced by polite , professional staff. The view from unit 5 is the best !! You look straight out on the watering hole - not much there but you can sit outside your little kitchen area and enjoy nature. The stars at... More

We loved spending 2 nights in this beautiful Camp. It is located on the banks of a dry river bed. We enjoyed a beautiful view of a couple of mating lions right from our terras! During the night the lions passed close by our cabine. It is a beautiful starting point for gama drives.

Overall, loved KTC! The tents are the largest of the camps we stayed at, and gave plenty of room to move around in. The kitchen area is enclosed, set off by itself, and was very easy to prepare quick meals in, in addition to the BBQ. You really cannot see your neighbors. Not much at the waterhole, but did see...

We will, without a doubt return to this camp. The accommodation is great, clean and neat. The view from the rooms overlooking the riverbed and pan, which has an 'all night' spot light is beautiful. We saw a fair variety of game at the pan both during the day and at night. The call of the jackals each evening and... More
