Grootkolk Wilderness Camp is tucked away in the dunes of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, where three countries meet. It is a wilderness camp nestled amidst red sand dunes with only the stars and silence for company. It is the perfect retreat for special occasions, or to simply just get away from it all. The camp overlooks a waterhole, which is visible from guests' chalets, and is the perfect spot from which to watch the wildlife of the Kgalagadi. The park is one of the best spots in Africa to see cheetah. Lions, leopards, meerkats, wildebeest and springbok are also found in the park. Accommodation is provided in the form of 4 2-bed chalets with bathrooms and verandas. One unit is accessible to disabled persons, and communal kitchen and barbecue facilities are provided. Guests can enjoy the wilderness and wildlife of the park on game drives or guided walks, and can traverse the sand dunes surrounding the camp on 4x4 trails.
