Kalahari Destinations


Explore a true African wilderness in the Kalahari


The Kalahari is a vast savannah biome that supports a flourishing plethora of plants, birds and animals in all shapes and sizes. Occupying a vast amount of the African sub-continent, it begins in South Africa, extends across the whole of Botswana and occupies approximately half of Namibia while fringing slightly on Zimbabwe, Zambia, Angola and the DRC.

Erroneously referred to as a desert, this vast expanse experiences too much rain to correctly be classified as one and in reality is a fossil desert. Lacking in the sand dunes found in the Namib Desert, the topography of the Kalahari is made up of grass and small copper-coloured dunes. The Namibian area of the Kalahari is covered with trees, ephemeral rivers and fossilised watercourses, and the adequate rainfall allows for huge numbers of mammals, birds, reptiles, insects and plant life to thrive.

The nomadic San Bushmen have continuously inhabited the Kalahari over the past 30,000 years, living in hunter-gatherer family groups. The San are eager to impart their intrinsic knowledge of the land to travellers, as well as information about the fascinating way they lead their lives. Visitors can enjoy game drives, hikes, guided walks with a San bushman and cultural visits to their villages.
