2 Leopards, 39 lions and 12 cheetah, wow!
We loved Mabuasehube best, lions on the bonnet was a bit too close for comfort, but definitely a once in a life time experience!

We have stayed on two occasions and have always enjoyed the experience. We have see cheetahs, lions and a leopard here as well as an awesome array of buck, giraffes and wild birds. The scenery is beautiful and it is a beautiful place to visit. The shop and the educational building are very good. I look forward to the return of the San people to the area

Only saw it from the perspective of the Aoeb River and moving in/out of !Xaus Lodge but what a gorgeous place. Loved every moment being there.

For Africa self drive safari junkies, this is the place to visit. Superb wildlife. More lions and cheetah's than anywhere else, and right next to the vehicle! Many of the camps are unfenced and nightly visits by jackals and hyenas are common All the camps are fantatstic.

A must visit!

Although a long way to drive to, combine it with a stay at Augrabies Falls, and various other Northern Cape Towns, and make a relaxing holiday of it. Camping at Twee Rivieren is hot and dusty, but with good facilities, such as restaurant, pool, shop. Or stay in a well equipped chalet, self catering. Camping in Nossob is really great, just get a camping site with a tree for shade, and position your tent accordingly.Good shop, well equipped laundry and kitchen with power points (power is switched off between midnight and 5am?). Pool to keep cool in! Kalahari Tented Camp is fantastic, first rate tents and seperate cooking tent with fridge! Mata Mata is close by for a shop, if you need basics. And a small pool thrown in as well.
As for the animals, well, you`re spoilt rotten! Once you`ve been, you`ll be booking for another visit very soon.
