|This article has Star potential. It’s well written with great information. However, for Star status it needs both to be entirely complete and to perfectly match the Manual of style. If you see how it can be improved, please plunge forward or point it out on the talk page.|

 Star status?
I don't think this is star ready yet. Here are my primary reasons:
- There are no contact details in the sleep and do section
- Get out should link to Wikitravel articles on those other Parks and reserves. (and those articles should be on at least guide status for this one to become a star)
- References to Upington should be links and Upington should be at least at guide status. Kakamas and Keimoes will need to be created as well
- As the primary entrance way to Kgalagadi from Botswana, Tsabong should exist, be at guide status and all references to it should be links.
- Do sections should have contact and price details. (Who to contact for night drive, what will it cost etc)
- Some more hiking/day walks information is required.
- Information is not quite complete yet. Here is some I know off, but I have not been in that area for a while and I'll sure there will be more.
In addition to that I would also recommend that we move the wildlife detail from the park article and place it into African flora and fauna. Many areas/parks will have the same animals and plants and it is rather silly to duplicate it all over. Keep one or two photos as well as a short summary in this article, but move the bulk to African flora and fauna and link to it.
I think that rather than trying to get individual Southern African articles to star status we should rather concentrate on getting as many as possible to usable or guide status.

- The linked articles don't necessarily have to be "guide" status; that requirement is only for places that are part of the subject of the article (e.g. regions in a country, districts in a city). It's definitely a good idea to develop the "gateway" cities for a national park, especially if they're an important part of a visit to that park, but the status of a park article is determined by how well it covers the park itself. I agree with your other comments. - Todd VerBeek 10:10, 4 March 2007 (EST)
