    Default Mabuasehube and Kgalagadi tour

    Last chance to secure your spot on this very special tour to Mabuasehube and the greater Kgalagadi trans-frontier park. 11 Days of pure magic where you share your space with the wild lions of the Kalahari. We secured the best campsites next to the famous Mpaya pan as well as the magical Jacks Pan. The last part of this tour will end in Nossob. This is a photographers dream tour. R5 200 per person is an absolute steal to never be repeated. Only 2 spots left !!!!

    Special for forum members @ R4500 p/p because of the short notice

    Includes all cross border fees, camp and park fees.

    Mabuasehube is situated in the Botswana side of the Kgalagadi National Park. The name means ‘red earth’, named after the red Kalahari sand.


    Campsites are basic and it is important to make sure you have enough drinking water, cleaning and showering water. Water is a commodity in the Kalahari and very important on these safaris. Please make sure you have enough fuel with you, as there’s no filling stations within the park. There are also no shops, make sure you have enough food with you. It is advisable to travel in a group of 2 or more vehicles. Please make sure you have spare parts, tools, a sufficient medical aid kit and mosquito repellent.
    The attraction to Mabuasehube is the ‘road less traveled’ and after the rains have fallen the pans fill with water and it allows for an excellent wildlife and wilderness experience. The perfect trail to escape the popular Kgalagadi Trans Frontier park and explore the wild side of the kalahari.

    Day 1

    Meet up at Zeerust at 8:00 am from where we will proceed to the Lobatse border post. The first night will be spent on the cut line to the Mabuasehube gate.

    Day 2 and 3 Jacks Pan

    This pan is situated 40 km from Mabua main gate. This pan offers wonderful wildlife sightings from the comfort of your tent and we were entertained by a group of 4 Hyenas every night. The Lions came to greet us on our last day on the previous trip.


    Day 4 – 8 Mpaya

    Today our magical adventure through Mabua begins. We all settle in at our first campsite on the edge of Mpaya pan in Mabuasehube (Kgalagadi Trans Frontier Park). We will spend the day in one of the wildest and most remote places in Southern Africa.
    The area is renowned for its low lying pans, where giant eland, springbok, gemsbok and the famous Kalahari lions come to quench their thirst. We will be in an area where the game has free access to wilderness more than twice the size of the Kruger National Park. Except for the rustic vehicle tracks, there is nothing else man-made and, without light pollution, the heavenly night skies and solitude will take your breath away.
    The days will be spend doing either game drives or just lying around in camp and rest – waiting for the wildlife to come to us.

    Day 9 Matopi

    We will have our last breakfast in the Mabua part of the park, break camp and continue en rout via the Matopi route through the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park to Matopi which we will call home for 1 night.


    Day 10 and 11 Nossob

    The Nossob riverbed is rated one of the best places in Southern Africa to view raptors particularly during the summer months when large numbers of migratory eagles, kites and falcons move through the park. Of the 80 raptors recorded in Southern Africa, 52 have been recorded in the KTP. Specifically, Polentswa is a haven for birders with migratory birds passing through the Polentswa pan.
    This last African wilderness is heaven on earth but don’t take my word for it, please read on tripadvisor what others had to say about this piece of paradise.
