KANG


Kang is a small town in the Kalahari Desert but it’s position on the Trans-Kalahari Highway makes it a place of some importance to travelers in Botswana. The main route from South Africa to Namibia passes through this town and it has become a hub of activity with a number of guesthouses and some excellent overnight accommodation options to meet the needs of business and holiday travelers.

A fuel station and shops provide the necessary infrastructure for travelers and locals alike. It is also an ideal rest place for the 4x4 adventurers between Ghanzi and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve to the north and Sekoma and the Mabuashehube area of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the south.

The town lies 340 km from the Gaborone Lobatse Border Post between Botswana and South Africa, 390 km from the Buitepos Border Post between Botswana and Namibia and 455 km from the McCarthys Rest Border Post near Tsabong on the South African border. Although not a holiday destination as such, there are some pleasant game farms near Kang where you can do game drives and admire the beautiful thorn tree and sandy savannah landscape.
