Here you’ll want to wake up early, make your coffee and drive 5km. Now sit tight and wait patiently to see what the Kalahari has in store for you. While waiting for the elusive leopard, you’ll most probably witness gemsbok duelling in the dusty riverbed, Namaqua doves flying to and from the water’s edge and probably a jackal or two coming by for a drink. Named after the confluence of the Auob and Nossob riverbeds, this scenic waterhole is well known among many Kgalagadi enthusiasts. It’s surrounded by cliffs, riverbeds and dunes; sightings are abundant and you can see all the surrounding areas.
When it comes to gear, you can get away with almost anything because this waterhole is highly accommodating. A large prime lens will allow you to see and capture extra details and a high-speed camera will add additional moments to your reel of burst shots.
