About the Kalahari

Technically, the Kalahari is not a desert, but a semi-desert savannah.

In reality, it is a mystical place!
A land of enchantment; a wonderful state of mind.

For you, it will be the experience of a lifetime: a journey to the land of the Kalahari black-mane lion, the regal Gemsbok, the diminutive Meerkat; a journey to the land of the Bushman.

The Kalahari is an immense desert eco-system covering large parts of South Africa, Namibia, and Botswana. The sky is azure blue, the sand iron red.

As you travel this magical land, you will become part of the seemingly endless dunes, some just windswept sand others grass-covered.

You'll wonder about the Camelthorn trees in the dry river beds, knowing that they are hundreds of years old.

You will be one with nature when viewing the weaver birds around their massive haystack nests. Herds of springbok and blue wildebeests become as common as the sand. ...and, on occasion, you will be witness to the incredible speed of the cheetah.

The Kalahari of South Africa is located in the north west section of the country. Much of the land is called the "Green Kalahari" and is full of farms, sheep and cattle ranches, and the largest wine region in South Africa.

North of Upington, in the Northern Cape Province, you will find the Kalahari of the legends'll find the Molopo Kalahari Lodge.


What you'll see

Apart from the splendor and tranquility of the Molopo Lodge and its surroundings, there is of course the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Known as the largest park of its kind in the world.
