In the exquisite boundaries of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, on the border of South Africa and Botswana, is the thrill and adventure of the Nossob 4x4 Eco-Trail. Only a quarter of the park is situated within the borders of South Africa, but this part of the country is nothing short of breath-taking in its stark, red-sand beauty.

The Nossob 4x4 Eco-Trail is a one-way route that extends between the Nossob River and the Twee Rivieren River, departing from these on an alternative basis. It is an impressive 214 kilometres long, and takes around 85 hours to complete. It has a grade of three, and drivers are required to take one of the experienced, qualified guides along as this is not a self-drive course. The countryside consists of gravel, sand dunes and sandy stretches, which challenge drivers and test their handling skills.

Departures for this trail are every Monday (except over Christmas and New Year) and require advanced booking to secure your place and guide.

Temperatures are extreme in the summer, with daytime highs reaching the 40 to 45 degrees Celsius. Winter is also extreme, and can dive below freezing. So, drivers of the Nossob 4x4 Eco-Trail should be prepared for these if they are braving the trail during summer or winter. For the most pleasant driving conditions, spring and autumn are the best times.

Before or after the 4x4 trail, visitors to this area are invited to go hiking, walking, or bird-watching in the area, thanks to the plethora of natural treasures here. There are guided game drives and hiking trails that allow one to appreciate the fauna and flora with the help of someone that knows the area and can provide added insights. Some of the animals that 4x4 drivers can look forward to seeing are blue wildebeest, springbok, raptors, and even the shy leopard.
