The Kalahari Desert offers Africa in its most untouched state making for an excellent Kalahari safari. This arid to semi-arid landscape of a Kalahari safari is not what one would commonly associate with a desert. It features areas of flat grasslands and acacia trees with huge tracts of excellent gazing after good rains. The San Bushmen inhabited these lands for over 20,000 years, roaming as nomadic travellers, taking only as needed from this harsh dry landscape. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the world’s second largest protected area. It supports a large variety of animals to be seen on a Kalahari safari. These include brown hyenas, lions, meerkats, giraffes, warthog and several species of antelope, birds and reptiles. There are certainly animals here you may not have the opportunity to see on safari elsewhere.
Over 400 plant species have been identified, including the wild watermelon, adding a different element to your Kalahari safari. In December the springbok birthing season results in increased predator action. The central Kalahari offers year round good game viewing for a Kalahari safari.
