Kaa covers the most northern section of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Towns located nearest to Kaa are Hukuntsi and Kang. There are a number of pans in this region that fill with water during the rainy season and their hard surface layer ensures that the water remains in the pans and is not immediately absorbed. These pans are of great importance to the wildlife, which obtain valuable nutrients from the salts and the grasses of the pans. The park is famous for predators like the black-mane lions, gemsbok and bat eared foxes that can be seen hunting for insects. There is also an abundance of birdlife to be enjoyed. Some of the earliest travellers referred to this dry area as Thirstland, translated into Setswana as Kgalagadi.
