Nossob Camp - Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Nossob rest camp is situated within the dry riverbed of the Nossob. The camp is surrounded by tree savannah and is famous for spectacular predator sightings. Because of the sparse vegetation and concentration of animals in the dry riverbeds of the Auob and Nossob Rivers, Kgalagadi offers premium mammal viewing destinations anywhere.

Nossob is especially renowned for predator watching and for the seasonal movement of large herbivores such as blue wildebeest, springbok, eland and red hartebeest. Ground Squirrel and Suricate (Meerkat) are two more of the park’s more prominent species. You will have an excellent chance of seeing cheetah, leopard, brown and spotted hyena and the definitive black-maned lion.

Nossob Camp and its surrounds exhibit a blend of bird species typical of the other camps, and have the added attraction of a wide variety of raptor species. The two dry riverbeds in the park, namely the Nossob and Auob, support a wide spectrum of bird species and are the focus points of bird activity.

There are 2 roads that cross the duneveld in the park, the one being 55 km long the other 35 km. These roads traverse mainly through open grassland with occasional shrubs and trees, and provide many birders with good views of a number of species.
