The Kgalagadi draws tens and thousands of nature photographers not just for the amazing wildlife but additionally for the most strange scenery. You've the contrasts between the orange African-american air, deep red sand dunes, rugs of orange and pink wild-flowers, bright calcrete cliffs and the green woods and shrubs.
The Auob and Nossob highways offer excellent options but therefore do the wilderness camps, since they are mostly found together with large sand dunes. Our favorites are Kieliekrankie, Kalahari Tented Camp and Gharagab because of their height. Urikaruus, Bitterpan and Grootkolk camps are not found as large but can also provide good lovely photographs - you just need to be much more creative.
Twee Rivieren, Mata Mata and olife Nossob could also provide landscape options but just watch out for phone poles and different disturbances that will produce their way in to your arrangement!
The Kgalagadi can be the most effective park to photograph star trails because of it being so far away from civilization and therefore far away from gentle and pollution. Upington is the nearest town, that will be 300 kilometers out!

Waterholes such as Homob, Salvadora, Twee Hands and Chudop are extremely lovely and there is the view within the pan from the view-points or from waterholes which can be found on the edge of the pan such as Okondeka.
The opinions from the camp waterholes, Moringa (in Halali Camp) and Okaukuejo waterholes, also produce permanently landscape photographs.
