Gharagab Camp is an unfenced wilderness camp on top of a high red sand dune.

Each of the four dune cabins has an unspoilt view over the watering hole and its panorama of daily activity. Each cabin can see the sun rise and there is a tower at the back of the cabins where you can climb up to see the setting sun – this must be the second-most panoramic view in the whole Kgalagadi Park, behind only Kielie Krankie camp.

The nearest shop is at Nossob, over 100 kilometers away so please make sure you take enough food, water and firewood with you!

The waterhole is the second closest to the cabins so it makes an ideal base for photographers. Our estimate places the waterhole about 70 meters from the cabins.

This page has been created to allow visitors to post their special stories and pictures for others to see.

The photographs should be taken at the camp waterhole or close to the camp area.

Visitors to this page can then comment on, discuss and rate each picture and story.
