Kalahari

Font Size Increase Font Size Decrease Print Page Send to Friend Add to Favorites

While Namibia is more famous for being the home of the Namib Desert, it must be remembered that much of eastern and southern Namibia is covered by another - the Kalahari Desert. The Kalahari is not a true desert as it receives too much rain, but it is actually a fossil desert. So, do not expect to find the tall sand dunes associated with Sossusvlei. The proud Bushmen people are famous for living in the Kalahari Desert and are keen to demonstrate their origins and knowledge of living in the bushveld by the unique ‘click’ language. This landscape is more one of golden grass and small red dunes. The Kalahari Desert - or Kgalagadi, as it is known in Botswana – stretches across 7 countries – Botswana, Zambia, the Republic of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Its coverage in Namibia is called a ‘desert' principally because of its porous, sandy soils that cannot retain surface water.
