South Africa 2011
Kalahari Transfrontier Park
We crossed into the park at Mata Mata, where we stayed for two nights. The park is situated between South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. So you go out of Namibia, but not really into South Africa. It is huge. It has wonderful sights and animals. No plants here, just other fabulous nature.
