South Africa : Kalahari Gemsbok National Park
The Kalahari Gemsbok National Park is located between the borders of Namibia and Botswana. It covers an area of a little less than 10,000 square kilometers. This park and the adjacent Gemsbok National Park of Botswana together occupy as much as 36,000 square kilometers. Since there is no barrier separating the two parks, the animals move freely from park to park.
[an error occurred while processing this directive] The Nossob and the Auob - the two major rivers in the park - flow very rarely. Two of the three roads open to the public form these rivers' courses. One can rent huts with fully equipped kitchens (air conditioning is available only at Twee Rivieren Rest Camp) and there are camping sites. Facilities include an extensive network of game viewing roads, picnic sites, shops selling groceries (fresh meat and eggs are only available at Twee Rivieren), and a swimming pool (at Twee Rivieren Rest Camp). Wildlife in this park, which is open throughout the year, includes antelopes such as the eland, gemsbok, blue wildebeest, red hartebeest and springbok. The park is also home to the lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted and brown hyena, black-backed jackal and about 215 bird species.
