The Kalahari Desert offers warm colours and great contrasts. A superb photo motive is a light brown and black Sable standing with its long curved horns on top of a deep red sand dune which has been all but hidden by little green and golden tufts of grass.

The Kalahari Desert covers eastern and southern Namibia, large parts of Botswana and the north-western area of South Africa. It can't be defined as a real desert as it receives too much rain. It can rather be called a fossil desert. This area in Namibia is inhabited by the San people (Namibian bushmen), who used to be hunter-gatherers. They are now surviving by game hunting and collecting edible plants, like berries or desert melons.
