Stayed here for 2 nights. Great location with a fun drive in and out over the red dunes of the Kalahari. Tents are comfy with adequate facilities. If you enjoy nature and the tranquility of the bush then this camp is for you. Kitchen stocked with basic utensils that do the job! Be sure to bring all your own food... More

I was there with guests. The chalets are great and the view good. The road leding there is awesome and the vegitation changes the whole time. Tourists that are looking for more than just the animals, but enjoy the whole nature experience will enjoy this

This is an incredible wilderness experience. It's beautiful. Awesome and pretty views although the waterhole is a trough. We were trapped in our hut by lions for a day which was quite something . The entry road is narrow with reasonable dunes and with a bit of care not a problem. The cabins are tented with corrugated Iron roofs. Also... More

Gharagab is the most remote of the Kgalagadi wilderness camps and is situated about 3,5 hours drive from the Nossob camp in the north. The last 30 km is a 4x4 sand track and can comfortably be negotiated in a soft 4x4. This part take about one hour. The refrigerator and water heating is on gas and the lights on... More

Probably the most isolated of camps. Beautiful location. Magnificent drive to it. The area as a whole is not the best for wildlife, you go there especially for scenery. But we saw a 60+ herd of Eland and 2 lions at the waterhole the one night we stayed there. The only negative maybe, or where we felt Bitterpan had a... More

Also overhere a second visit to this camp, check in again at nossob, and prepare yourself for a really long drive, the first stretch can be quite boring, but when coming closer to unions end, you'll see more wildlife and cats, we saw several. We stayed here on the 31st december, so felt really special being so far away from... More

When researching this trip, I heard that the Gharagab Camp was remote, a Wilderness camp (nothing to do with Wilderness Safaris), tough to get to, middle-of-nowhere, fairly basic type of Camp, rustic, and unencumbered with trifles, precious/delicate touches, creature comforts, style notes and sophistications, and that one needed to be self-sufficient.. Well - they got that right. And that is... More

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
