The vast, dramatic deserts of Southern Africa have captivated many travellers with their hauntingly scenic and silent landscapes graced by unusual species that somehow thrive in arid habitats. Here, time appears to stand still and peace prevails.

The oldest in the world—Namibia’s Namib Desert—shares its ocean of sand with Namib Naukluft National Park. Within lies the entrancing Sossusvlei with its salt and clay pan enveloped by towering dunes in deep red shades reaching for blue skies.

Desert Holiday

Another fascinating destination enveloped by the Kalahari Desert is the remote and expansive Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana. Not many animals can survive in this inhospitable habitat, making sightings more special. Despite being nearly waterless it is well vegetated in many places. In summer rains delivered by African thundershowers draw wildlife to the grasslands and shallow water-filled pans.
