Firstly, the camp is busy with major upgrades, so the review may look different within one year. New chalets are being built. We stayed in chalet no 10 - vey close to the hide, the shop and the office. accommodation is very good - very roomy. Our chalet could sleep 6 people in two bedrooms and the entrance area. Unlike...

Basic campsites with typical National Park's facilities. Amenities kept fairly clean and usable. Shop have basics available as well as fuel. Well maintained swimming pool....so nice after a long day in the park! If you want luxury......NOT for you !! If you want to be kept awake by roaring lions.....ONLY for you !!

Typical sub-standard of South African National Parks (Sanparks), state-owned monopolist. Worn out chalets (standard of the 70ies), demotivated and uninterested personnel. Everything needs more maintenance and renewal, but also more discipline in cleaning: Ant nests inside some chalets, sewage-smell in others... Another thing is wild life: the location is excelent for game drivings.

Never ever have I experienced how bone-chilling a lion's roar is, especially when you are camped out in the dry & dusty Nossob river bed area in a flimsy ground tent! It was so exciting to be here, so close to nature!The animal viewing area offered a good viewpoint to watch the black backed jackal and a few other animals....

The Kgalagadi Transfronteir Park is one of my favourite places in the whole world, but Nossob Camp does its best to drag it down to rock bottom. The man at the reception desk was polite and friendly, but that is where the service ended. The ladies in the shop were surly and only lifted their eyes from their cell phones...

Spent two days at this camp. Pretty central to numerous waterholes where most of the wildlife activity can be seen. For a sanpark facility, it is well run, clean ablutions, and enough space between campsites for privacy. It's pretty nice to have a pool to cool off in with temperatures around 40c.

Our chalet was adequately stocked. It housekeeping not up to standard. They are building new units along the river bed that will have the best views of the game coming to the water hole, these should be done by January. It is a must to book in one of these as the other units are "tired". They often run out...

We stayed just one night in Nossob, unfortunately this was all we could get! It's a lovely little camp with wonderful friendly staff. Our Chalet was again very neat, clean & well equipped with all you could want for self catering. We thoroughly enjoyed the hide & spent a fair amount of time in there during the evening & very...

I enjoyed Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park but unfortunately I did not enjoy the chalet we had at Nossob. My room did not have any windows, being there in October it is quite hot, all power is being cut at 22:00 and not having ventilation was a bit disappointing. A relieve was that the room was really well equipped for anything you...
