Why should I visit the Kalahari? What is it about Kalahari that makes it special?

It stretches across most of Botswana, eastern Namibia and parts of the Northern Cape province in South Africa. It is estimated to cover an area of 9,30,000 sq km and is home to a diverse range of wildlife, well adapted to this unique landscape.
