One of the largest conservation areas in Africa and a jewel in the crown of South Africa’s national parks, the Kgalagadi offers people the chance to experience the beauty of the Kalahari. Lions still roam free and the majestic gemsbok and red hartebeest can be appreciated against the backdrop of red dunes, sweeping grassland, and clear blue skies.
Two hundred and sixty-four species of birds have been recorded in this area of the Green Kalahari, however, the majority of birds are not resident species and are irregular visitors. Many of the birds cannot survive all year round in the Kalahari and migrate to areas where there are more favorable conditions. Dreghorn hosts an exceptionally large flock of Vultures. Vultures are an important part of Africa’s ecosystem.
