Aruna's Real Africa: Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, was it worth it?

Despite being 15,000 square miles, slightly larger than Maryland, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (75% of the park is in Botswana and 25% is in South Africa) has no elephants, rhinos or hippos. In fact it doesn’t even have zebra and only about 40 giraffe, so why did I really want to go there?

Well, because of all the stories of sightings where you are the only one and lions snoozing in the shade of your car.

And are the stories true?

Besides all the wildebeest, springbok, gemsbok and ostriches there are also beautiful landscapes.......

Dust storm in the Kgalagadi
Plenty of birds........

Squirrels in the campsites...

And even a mongoose joined us...

And yes, the stories are true, plenty of cats! Here is just one of the 14 lions we saw...
