KGALA­GADI DREAM­ING

Road Trip - - ROAD READY - Story by Casey Clark Cap­tured by Kgala­gadi Lodge

Some of the best game view­ing ex­pe­ri­ences can be found on the bor­der be­tween Botswana and South Africa. Road­trip gives you the low-down on one of our favourite lodges in the area.

Bags packed, spare wheel at­tached, and trailer in tow, ons gaan nou op Sa­fari. Ques­tion is, with so many great sa­fari des­ti­na­tions to choose from, which one are you head­ing to? For the avid game viewer with more re­fined taste, Kgala­gadi Lodge is the ideal des­ti­na­tion.

Pro­vid­ing a lux­u­ri­ous al­ter­na­tive to stay­ing at the rest camps within the park it­self, Kgala­gadi Lodge lies only 5 km from the Twee Rivieren gate of the Kgala­gadi Na­tional Trans­fron­tier Park. The lodge is the only one in the area with a su­per­mar­ket, butch­ery, bak­ery (with freshly bread baked daily), fully li­censed restau­rant, swim­ming pool, and bot­tle store – a con­ve­nience for which any ex­pe­ri­enced sa­fari en­thu­si­ast will be in­cred­i­bly grate­ful, that is cer­tain.

And, as en­thu­si­as­tic as you might be about a bushveld braai, af­ter a week of be­ing on sa­fari, I am sure you can un­der­stand the ap­peal of hav­ing the op­tion for a night off where some­body else cooks some­thing other than braai vleis for you.the restau­rant at the lodge serves up mouth-wa­ter­ing meals in­clud­ing a range of tra­di­tional South African Kala­hari dishes with a mod­ern twist. It has been voted the best food in the whole Kala­hari by Hospi­tal­ity Mar­ket­ing Inc, so you are in for quite the treat if you do de­cide to put aside the braai grill for the night.
