The Republics of Botswana and South Africa have joined forces in the promotion of Natural resources conservation by forming the world’s first ever Transfrontier Park “Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park” in Southern Africa. The formation of this park was merging the formerly known as Gemsbok National Park, which is 28,400km2 and lies in the extreme southwest of Botswana, and the formerly known as Kalahari Gemsbok National Park which is 9,591 km2 in the South African side.
The combined land area of the KTP is about 38,000 km2. Almost 75% of this Park is in Botswana side. There are three entrance gates into the Park – Twee Rivieren (Two Rivers) in the south, Kaa in the north and Mabuasehube in the east.
