Get to Know Central Kalahari

Botswana’s largest conservation area sprawls across a massive 52 000-square-kilometers of vast, wildlife-rich Kalahari desert that is home to lion, leopard and cheetah

Carnivores are well represented across the Kalahari landscape with the fabled black-maned lions of the Kalahari being the ultimate drawcard and top priority on most visitors wish lists.

The open terrain and sparse vegetation cover makes spotting animals considerably easier than in many of Africa’s other national parks, although the arid nature of the Central Kalahari means that animal densities are far lower than in other more well-watered game reserves. But even more than its wildlife – elephants also frequent the greener northern reaches of the park – it is the Kalahari’s big skies and boundless horizons that truly enthralls visitors.
