The landscape of Botswana is much defined by the 900,000 square kilometres of the Kalahari Desert.
Although receiving between five and ten inches of rainfall annually means this desert is more liberal in the sense of the word 'desert', the Kalahari sand dunes can claim the title of the largest continuous expanse of sand on earth, even beating the Sahara Desert.
There is a light covering of a surprising amount of trees and shrubbery amongst the sand, which have evidently evolved to make specific use of the tiny amount of rainfall the area receives each year.
The desert is home to the particularly large game reserve, Central Kalahari Game Reserve, which is perfect for a wilderness safari experience. Hyena, giraffe, leopard and wild dog all roam the through the fenceless reserve, making the Kalahari perfect for those exciting and memorable visits.
