The Kalahari! The name conjures up images of vast open arid spaces stretching as far as the eye can see. A stark mysterious and unexplored land full of exotic wildlife. The Kalahari contains the largest continuous expanse of sand on earth and is also home to the first people - considered to be one of the oldest cultures on Earth.
