Between the veil of old camelthorn trees, overlooking the Auob River in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, lies Urikaruus Wilderness Camp. Unfenced and frequented by jackals, this camp ensures that the guest's experience with nature and the wilderness is authentic and uninhibited. The camp is located close to the Twee Rivieren Rest Camp, where guests check in, and stock up on fuel and other supplies. Accommodation at the camp comprises four riverside cabins built on stilts and connected by a plank way. Each unit has two single beds, a bathroom, an equipped kitchen, solar power for lights, gas for hot water, and braai (barbecue) facilities on a deck. The vast plains of the Kgalagadi surround the camp, teeming with plant and animal life. Eland, gemsbok, giraffe, cheetah, lion, Spotted Hyena, springbok and Red Hartebeest are some of the wildlife found in the area. Guests at Urikaruus can experience this wilderness on game drives, walks, and 4x4 trails available at the camp.
