TRAVEL TO THE KALAHARI DESERT

swirl 2

The world’s largest continuous stretch of sand, the Kalahari Desert, to the south of Namibia, is a hub of life in its own respect. Thanks to a modest measure of rainfall, the landscape is well vegetated with a variety of trees, shrubs, camelthorn, red ebony and other acacias. In springtime the plains are covered in blankets of flowers and grass while the summer rains bring their fair share of greenery.

This physical beauty enhances the true allure of the Kalahari and the liberating silence and solitude found in so much open space. Visitors describe their visit as an emotionally enriching and almost spiritual experience.

Complete this experience by meeting the proud San Bushmen.  You will be respectfully introduced to the tribe where you can learn about their origins, traditions, and knowledge of living in the ‘bushveld’. In some cases you can still listen to their unique use of the ‘click’ language, an experience in itself.

HIKING: Read “Last night’s newspaper” from the tracks left in the sand on an early morning guided walk, and experience a Kalahari that you would not normally see by car. It is the abundance of small creatures which makes the desert so unique.
