Highly recommend this place we had a hiccup on arrival where they had double booked the luxury villa meaning we were put in a room we didnt book however they offered an extra room as compensation. The standard villas are more than fine and I would book again. Very friendly staff restaurant is very nice and a great gemsbok beer on tap, pool provides a great place to cool off in the afternoon talking to guests about animal sightings. The double booking was the only reason I didnt give 5 stars

The Kgalagadi accommodation was full and we had to book here. What an absolute gem and suck a lucky find! The houses are beautifull - lots of space - fully equipped and clean. Only 4 km to the gate and you are in the Kgalagadi! We will recommend and be back! The food - though basic due to covid was tasty and well done!

Kgalagadi Lodge is a great place to stop before entering the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Just be aware that the fraternity opens a bit later for those outside the park. The rooms are really funky and the sustainable industrial look will work for years and is maintenance free! Very comfortable, A/C’s, TV, braai facilities and an external plug to charge camp fridge. We had a puncture which was fixed at their workshop within minutes. A washer was also quickly manufactured for a loose mud flap. The restaurant on site serves a basic selection. Of food which was well prepared and real value. There is WiFi (last chance!) at the restaurant. A small shop with some basics also available. Great place to stop over. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the "A" ring campsites, which are larger than the "B" ones, more separated, and have a limited view over the lodge chalets (as opposed to no view). Each campsite was very large, had its own large, clean and modern shower/toilet/sink block. The cleaning staff were friendly and efficient (though we asked them to avoid us during our stay due to coronavirus distancing). The reception staff were not particularly welcoming, but we didn't have to see them often so it didn't disturb us. The sand in several of the campsites is deep and very soft. 4x4 would definitely be required to drag a caravan into them, but you have the option of parking on the harder sand in front of the campsites too, so you should have no problem with any car. The emus that wander around the campsite are an attraction of sorts, or just annoying when they deposit large and liquid amounts of emu-poo on your doorstep. The real advantage of this place is the proximity to the park, which is probably the only reason to stay here. But it does mean, since you're not staying in the park, that you need to go through the entire park registration process every day, including (at time of writing), Covid-screening. You also run the risk on busy days of being too late as the park limits visitors during covid. Obviously not a problem after the pandemic. They appeared to have a nice, if small, pool and bar, which we didn't make use of on this visit. The restaurant was closed when we visited because of covid, so can't review that.
