The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is the product of the unification of South Africa''s Kalahari Gemsbok National Park and Botswana''s Gemsbok National Park into a single mega-park, jointly managed by both countries. Covering a total area of 38 000 square kilometres it is one of the largest national parks in the world. The South African side of the park is dominated by two river valleys - the Nossob and the Aob - both of which can be dry for decades and only flow freely after particularly heavy rains. The area itself is characterized by red desert sand dunes and typical Kalahari vegetation.
The Kgalagadi is remote and gets very hot in summer. The South African side of the park however has a very good infrastructure of roads, accommodation options and camps - which stock basic snacks, food, water, fuel and in the case of Twee Rivieren, a restaurant too. Visitors should be largely self-sufficient. The park has no malaria.
Rich in wildlife the Kgalagadi is one of the best game viewing parks in South Africa. It is not a ‘Big 5'' destination as the harsh environment does not support elephant, rhino or buffalo. Visitors to this park can however hope to see black-maned Kalahari lions, cheetah, leopard, hyena, wild dogs, gemsbok, springbok, eland, wildebeest and many other species. Ground squirrels are commonly seen in and around the camps, and have the curious habit of holding their tails over their heads as a sort of sun umbrella. Giraffe are also present around Mata-Mata.
Alternatively you can rough it on the Botswana side, which has very few facilities and travel into this region is only possible with a 4×4 vehicle. Deep sandy tracks, unfenced campsites, little luxury and total self-sufficiency are the order of the day in this rugged and raw landscape. There is little that can put life into perspective quite like sitting around a campfire at night, and listening to the sound of lions roaring somewhere in the inmeasurable darkness.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
