Grootkolk

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Northern Cape, South Africa

Surrounded by camelthorn trees and close to the Nossob River bed, this lovely camp has good game-viewing, with lions, cheetahs, hyenas, and lots of antelope, including oryx and springbok, and it can book up months in advance. All four well-sited rustic desert cabins have a good view of the water hole, which is spotlighted for a couple of hours every night. Although the road to Grootkolk is heavily corrugated, you can negotiate it with a two-wheel-drive vehicle.

PROS

  • spotlighted water hole
  • sublime wilderness
  • ceiling fans in the cabins

CONS

  • 4x4s or 2x4s only
  • no children under 12
  • chalets are made from canvas and sandbags, so if you prefer something more substantial, stay away
