We start our journey south on the main highway, travelling through the thin strip of Kalahari Desert that protrudes onto the eastern side of Namibia. Stopping at small towns along the way including Rehoboth, traditional home of the Baster people and on to Kalkrand where you bid the main road farewell and head off into the Kalahari. The Kalahari Desert often surprises people when they first see it. It is very different from the Namib. First of all, remember that the Kalahari is not a desert. It receives more rain than a true desert should. The Kalahari is a fossil desert. Don’t expect to find tall Sossusvlei-style dunes devoid of greenery here. The Kalahari’s dunes are very different. They are often equally beautiful, but usually greener and less stark – and with this vegetation comes its ability to support more flora and fauna than a true desert. Relax near the water hole and watch a variety of game come to drink. We will join one of the game drive vehicles to track some game. There are thirty different species of game found on our game farm including species such as Rhino, Black Impala, Golden & White Oryx, Black & White Springbok, White Blesbok, Njala, Giraffe, Cheetah, Kudu, Gemsbok, Zebra & many more.
