Quiver Tree Forest at Keetmanshoop
Kalahari Bushmen
The Kalahari marks the eastern border between Namibia and Botswana. It receives much more rain than e.g. the Namib Desert, and lacks the large dunes of Sossusvlei. The landscape here is more grass and shrub-covered dune fields.
We use the camps in the southern part of the Kalahari at Mariental as stopovers on our self-driver tours in order to break the long journey from Windhoek to the south or to Wolwedans. Most lodges offer so-called ‘scenic drives’, which allow visitors to explore the region, but guests should not expect to see too much wildlife here. A Kalahari Bushman Walk is recommended for those interested in gaining insight into the life of the indigenous Bushmen.

Further south, close to Keetmanshoop, which is situated around three hours’ drive from the southern Kalahari camps, is the so-called Quiver Tree Forest. More than 200 of these usually solitary aloe plants grow together here to form a kind of ‘forest’.
