TRAVEL TO THE KGALAGADI

swirl 2

Covering 84% of Botswana’s land area, the semi-arid Kgalagadi terrain is alive with an astonishing diversity of plant and animal life. It has broad variations of natural vegetation including grass, shrub and tree savanna.

Extensive grasslands feed wildlife and also herds of cattle which support the country’s cattle ranching industry. Botswana’s wealth of diamonds, sourced in these desolate conditions, has sustained dramatic economic growth for the past thirty-five years.

Many desert animals, including springbok, gemsbok, eland, and  the Kalahari lion, have adapted to these harsh conditions, and can live without water for extensive periods. Most interesting are the Kalahari lions which are thought to gain moisture from the body fluids of their prey. Following good rains, the desert transforms into lush grassland and flooded pans, a source of rebirth and rejuvenation for animals, seasonal wildlife and birds.
