Mabuasehube is the eastern section of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in Botswana. Mabuasehube means 'red earth' named after the red Kalahari sand. There are a few campsites in this section of the Kgalagadi, all with basic ablution facilities and shade shelters. Otherwise you have to be self-sufficient. All the campsites are overlooking one of the few pans in this otherwise dry area. They 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-mained lions, gemsbok and bat eared foxes that can be seen hunting for insects. There is also an abundance of birdlife to be enjoyed.

The drinking water is questionable (if it is available at all – Gate was on severe rations July 2015).
It has a salty taste (brackish).
The water at the camping sites, although clear, should be avoided - it is really salty - even washing your hands with it dries them out.
Visitors reported a good water supply at Mabuasehube during a March 2019 visit.
The nearest fuel supply is in Tsabong.
