Dreghorn Kalahari Game Farm is located on the banks of the Molopo River in the Green Kalahari and offers a wonderful opportunity to get back in touch with nature. Just 15 kilometres from the Bokspits border post and only 50 kilometres from the famous Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa, Dreghorn Kalahari Game Farm is the perfect place for a two or three-day stop-over on the way to Transfrontier Park. The Molopo River forms the border between Botswana and South Africa and attracts many bird species, ideal for those keen twitchers out there. Easily accessible for day excursions, Kgalagadi is one of the largest conservation areas in Africa and offers the opportunity to experience the beauty of the Kalahari. Here, lions roam free and the majestic gemsbok and red hartebeest go about their daily routines, set against the backdrop of red dunes, vast grassland and blue skies. The Dreghorn Farm is 200 kilometres from Upington, making it a convenient weekend or week-long getaway spot for nature enthusiasts.
Dreghorn Kalahari Game Farm is located on a farm with species such as springbok, gemsbok, giraffe and red hartebeest for guests to enjoy. Safari-goers can admire other iconic wildlife on the farm including animals such as ostrich, blue wildebeest and meerkat. 264 species of birds have been recorded in this area of the Green Kalahari, however, the majority of birds are not resident species and are irregular visitors. Many of the birds cannot survive all year round in the Kalahari and migrate to areas where there are more favourable conditions. Dreghorn hosts an exceptionally large flock of Vultures. Vultures are an important part of Africa’s ecosystem.
The best time to visit Dreghorn is at the end of the wet season or during the dry season. The dry season is between May and September and is the time when wildlife gathers around the riverbeds and the vegetation starts thinning out.
Dreghorn Kalahari Game Farm has everything a safari enthusiast needs for the perfect Kalahari experience. From guided game drives and 4WD trails to hiking, camel riding, and bird watching. Furthermore, the cuisine is outstanding and provides an experience of its own, where guests can enjoy traditional dishes and an indoor braai night for those chilly evenings. Other activities include quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, and learning how to track animals with a guide.
Dreghorn Farm boasts wonderful accommodation options for those looking to stay a night or two. The wooden cabins sit in the heart of the red Kalahari dunes and come fully equipped.
