The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is considered one of the most pristine conservation areas in the world and is a firm favorite with wildlife photographers as a result of the incredible diversity of life and the crisp clear light conditions. On the South African side of the park, visitors have the option of travelling up either the Auob or Nossob Riverbeds.
The Auob is an ephemeral river that lies between Twee-Rivieren and Mata Mata camps and is 110kms in length. It is narrower than the Nossob and the well-interspersed waterholes attract good numbers of game, associated predators and birds. The lower calcreate ridges provide excellent cover for Leopard while in the upper reaches, numerous Black-Backed Jackal, Cape Fox and Bat-Eared Fox dens lie close to the roadside.
