Gondwana Kalahari Park
The Kalahari – green acacias and yellow grass starkly contrast with the red oxidised sand of Kalahari dunes that extend over hundreds of kilometres. Gondwana Kalahari Park will provide you with unforgettable impressions of the largest continuous stretch of sand on earth. The park is 100km² in size and situated 30km north-east of Mariental. Animals like springbok, oryx (gemsbok) and ostrich as well as jackal, hares and porcupine inhabit the dunes and dune valleys, referred to as ‘streets‘.
