Get to Know The Kalahari Desert

From the rolling red dunes of the Kgalagadi transfrontier conservation area, to the sparse grasslands of Botswana's Central Kalahari, this is an arid wilderness that is rich in in desert-adapted wildlife and unsurpassed scenic beauty.

The Kalahari is home to the regal black-maned lion, secretive leopard and endangered African wild dog. But the desert is also regarded as the best place in Africa to view cheetah in the wild. With its abundant herds of springbok and scattering of steenbok, the Kalahari's wide-open landscapes provide a perfect hunting ground for Africa's fastest land mammal. Visitors who are fortunate enough to spend some time in the company of a Kalahari cheetah stand an excellent chance of watching this amazing speedster in action as it hunts its favoured antelope prey at high speed.
