Kgalagadi ninth in the Top 50 Best Safari Parks of Africa

17 June 2015

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park has been ranked ninth in the Top 50 Best Safari Parks of Africa. Numerous parks that are part of southern Africa's transfrontier conservation areas are also in the Top 50. Kgalagadi is the only transfrontier park on the list.
SafariBookings.com published the list of Africa’s best safari parks. The list was based on 3 008 park reviews that were collected via the SafariBookings website. Of this total, 2 234 reviews were contributed by safari tourists from more than 60 nationalities. To complement these user reviews, reputable guidebook authors (working for Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Frommer’s, Bradt and Footprint) teamed up in the SafariBookings Expert Panel and wrote another 774 expert reviews.
In total, 138 parks of the eight major safari countries, i.e. Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, were in consideration for a place in the Top 50.

Bravo Kgalagadi!
