Best of the Kalahari

Safari Overview
It is said that once you have felt the red sand of the Kalahari under your bare feet, those tiny granules never leave your soul… The red dune landscapes, big blue skies and the calm serenity and utter silence of that magical place stay with you forever.
The magic of the Kalahari lies in the solitude, the utter silence, the breath-taking night skies, the remoteness and the savage nature of the wilderness. It is also home to some fascinating animals, birds and plants that have adapted and even thrived in this seemingly inhospitable environment.
This 9 day itinerary highlights the best of what the vast Kalahari has to offer, not just in terms of excellent fauna and flora sightings, but also mind-blowing landscapes, superb local cuisine, excellent accommodation and the best sunsets you have ever seen. Let’s head off to enjoy the Kalahari’s red dunes!
