The tents are actually pre-built sand bag structures with a tented roof. Very neat and well equipped with separate kitchen and balcony overlooking the waterhole. Situated in the wilderness with only a fence around the tent. Friendly staff and a welcome splash pool at reception.

From the wonderful welcome by the camp manager, through the great views from our well appointed bedroom and kitchen tents, to game sightings like a mother cheetah teaching her cubs to hunt, this place gave everything. Yes I know - hunting cheetah are not a certainty, but there is always something going on in the Kgalagadi, like mice eating Rhigozum...

We spent two nights at KTC in a 4 sleeper tent. Tents are large, clean, comfortable beds and a decent shower but could do with some upgrading. Kitchen had most of the essentials and a fridge freezer. There was small outside sitting area with a barbecue and a lock up car park. Cleaning staff cleaned the room but did not...

We spent a night at the KTC recently and were very impressed. The tents are very comfortable, very clean and adequate shower and toilet facilities are en suite. Rooms overlook a pan and we saw a fair amount of animals including jackals, giraffe, gemsbok but missed the lion that came down to drink. Each tent has a well equipped kitchen...

I quite like KTC as the tented camps are quite nice. Location is 3kms from Mata Mata where you have the shop and fuel station. KTC is a wilderness camp but has about 10-14 tented camps. Mostly 2 bedders but also has a few family units and a honeymoon suite. The camps are quite far from the waterhole so you...
