    Default Currency in Kgalagadi Transfrontier park

    Hi, glad your a quick bit of advice I can't find an answer to on Google. I'm driving from windhoek via Kgalagadi to Joburg, staying at Khalari tented camp, bitterpan and twee river. I'll have a visa card and Namibian shillings, but no Rand. Can I use these to pay for the shop and activities like night drives in mata mata/khalari tented camp?

    they have card machines and an atm at Mata Mata - if your visa card is enabled for international use you will be fine

    but you do realise that even though your camps are in chronological order you can only access Bitterpan from Nossob side which is quite a drive

    Thanks! Yeah they were the only available places when I booked. So about 3 hours from Mata mata to Nossob asks another 3 hours to Bitterpan?

    3 hours between the 2 will be pushing it! You can work more towards 4 hours at least.

    For small purchases you might need Rand, they do not accept Namibian shilling.
