Kalahari Desert holidays

Namibia’s Kalahari region represents an undiscovered corner of the African continent, where rugged plant life, adapted wildlife and timeless cultures exist in a surreal yet spectacular landscape. A huge expanse of desert, the Kalahari boasts an array of magnificent landscapes, from bare, towering mountains to striking red sand dunes, whose hue shifts with the light of the day. The relatively high rainfall allows for a surprisingly diverse flora and stretches of lush greenery; the hardy San people, who have made their home here for centuries, have a deep and fascinating knowledge of the uses of more than 1,000 plants that grow here. Wild, magical and peaceful visiting the Kalahari is to explore a remarkable and unique place whose mysteries will leave you enchanted.
