The Kalahari holidays

The Kalahari Desert in South Africa is part of a huge sand basin that was created by the erosion of soft sand formations. It covers over 970,000 square miles across six countries; South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Unlike the moving sand dunes of the Namib Desert, the dunes here have been stabilised through a variety of flora and fauna, including native acacia trees. The small amount of annual rainfall helps to support a number of bird, reptile and mammal species including brown hyena, meerkat, warthog, giraffe, lion and several antelope. Tswalu Kalahari, owned by the Oppenheimer family, is South Africa’s largest private game reserve, covering an area of over 100,000 hectares. With a strong emphasis on conservation, no more than thirty guests at a time can discover the beauty of this landscape and its diverse wildlife.
