The Kalahari Desert in Africa, gets its name from the Tswana word "kgalagadi", meaning "the great thirst", which is an apt term for this sandy expanse stretching from northern South Africa, to Namibia, Angola and to the DRC.
The Kalahari Desert is not a true desert, as the dry riverbeds, salt pans and plains are well vegetated. Rainfall is erratic, and no permanent surface water exists, which has resulted in some fascinating adaptations in the fauna and flora to extreme and unpredictable conditions.
Due to its remoteness, harsh climate and until recently, inaccessibility, the Kalahari has remained in pristine condition.
