Description

SANParks Urikaruus Wilderness Camp is an unfenced camp in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Without moving from your camp you may be privileged to witness herds of springbok, wildebeest, giraffe, lion or even cheetah. Surrounded by Camelthorn trees, this lofted camp overlooks a very active waterhole in the river bed. The trees attract thousands of birds including sandgrouse, finches, doves and falcons, to name a few. Urikaruus is situated on the bank of the Auob River between Twee Rivieren and Mata-Mata camps. Urikaruus will be accessible by passenger vehicles however a 4x4 with high ground clearance and low range capabilities is recommended. Urikaruus Wilderness Camp is situated 72 km or 2 hours drive away from Twee Rivieren.

Where the red dunes and scrub fade into infinity and herds of gemsbok, springbok, eland and blue wildebeest follow the seasons, where imposing camel thorn trees provide shade for huge black-mane lions and vantage points for leopard and many raptors, this is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Access to the Park can be gained through 5 gates in 3 different countries. From South Africa access is through the Twee Rivieren gate, from Namibia through the Mata-Mata gate and from Botswana through the Two Rivers, Mabuasehube and Kaa gates.

The camp offers accommodation in raised Riverside Cabins built on stilts. Each cabin contains 2 single beds, a shower en suite with a toilet and washbasin, a well-equipped kitchen with cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery, a fridge-freezer, and a gas stove. Power in the camp is supplied by solar and gas, there are no conventional plugs. Each cabin has a deck with outdoor furniture and braai facilities.

The camp is not fenced bringing the veld right to your door, and a Tourism Supervisor is on duty at all times. The Urikaruus Wilderness Camp also has a waterhole.
