THE KALAHARI DESERT HOLIDAYS

The Kalahari Desert spreads across 900,000 square kilometres, covering much of Botswana. Unlike other true deserts, the Kalahari boasts excellent grazing opportunities after decent levels of rain and therefore supports much more plant and animal life than one might expect.

The Central Kalahari game Reserve is the second largest wildlife reserve in the world and the largest in Southern Africa. After good rains in the summer, scores of wildlife gather at the best grazing areas in the northern flat grasslands - including large herds of springbok and gemsbok, with wildebeest, giraffe and elands. The northern deception valley is one of the highlights, principally because of the dense concentrations of herbivores its sweet grasses attract during and after the rainy season (and of course the accompanying predators).

Whilst the wildlife is seasonal, the attraction of the Kalahari is the almost-infinite landscape. Fossilised river valleys are now salt pans, tall grasslands break for sand dunes, sand acacias and Kalahari appleleaf are a common site along with silver terminalia sandvelt. Vast pans stretch out to the horizon front of you, where they meet a bold blue sky.

Night time in the Kalahari is a sight that you will not easily forget. The stars burn with a captivating brightness that draws you into the sheer scale of this wondrous place.
