The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park spreads across 3 million hectares, straddling both Botswana and South Africa. The South African side is where most of the wildlife occurs, in the dry river beds, and is also where most of the tourism facilities are located.

There are several popular tourist spots where you can easily admire this basalt-topped mountain range, but the upper reaches are deceptively difficult to reach, and to do so almost always involves plenty of steep hiking!
