The stilted cabins perch in a very remote section of the park, with excellent sunset vistas across a pan. Access is via a rough, one-way, 4WD-only route from Nossob.
Bitterpan Wilderness Camp
Getting out here requires coming through Nossob on a one-way 4WD-only route, but damn if these stilted tents hovering over a shimmering waterhole and within sight of red sand dunes aren’t worth it for their sheer romance...
Among camel-thorn trees and grass savannah, Gharagab’s elevated log cabins survey the red dunes. Perks at the remote spot, accessed on a one-way, 4WD-only trail from Union’s End, include decks overlooking a waterhole popular with brown hyenas.
Grootolk Wilderness Camp
Nestled amid red sand dunes, Grootkolk’s desert cabins are made from sand bags and canvas – definitely a different sleeping experience. As if the stars and silence weren’t enough, predators are often spotted at the waterhole.
Kalahari Tented Camp
This series of 15 tents (including a honeymoon pitch – nice) perches over a waterhole in the dried-out Auob River, with stunning blood-red thirst lands all around. Basic supplies are available at Mata Mata Rest Camp, 3km away.

Surrounded by thorny Kalahari dune bushveld, Mata-Mata is a good place to spot giraffe. The chalets, which have between two and six single beds, were upgraded as part of a facelift in 2010.
Molopo Kalahari Lodge
About 60km south of Twee Rivieren, Molopo is an attractive place in traditional African safari-lodge style. The rondavels are a reasonable way to visit Kgalagadi on a budget, featuring a fridge and bath with hand-held shower...
Situated within the dry Nossob riverbed and surrounded by tree savannah, this camp is a good place to spot predators. The chalets have between two and six single beds; the guesthouses have four and the cottage has six.

Twee Rivieren Rest Camp
The most accessible and popular rest camp on either side of the river, Twee Rivieren features a swimming pool and, unusually for this area, an outdoor bar-restaurant...
Perched on the banks of the Auob River, the four stilted cabins are connected by raised walkways between the camel-thorn trees. Overlooking a waterhole in the riverbed, Urikaruus is the second-closest wilderness camp to Twee Rivieren.
