Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a large wildlife preserve and conservation area in southern Africa. The park straddles the border between South Africa and Botswana and comprises two adjoining national parks.
The total area of the park is 38,000 square kilometres (15,000 sq mi). Approximately three-quarters of the park lie in Botswana and one-quarter in South Africa. Kgalagadi means “place of thirst.”
In September 2014, more than half of the Botswana portion of the park was sold for gas-fracking.
