An immense wilderness of grass-covered dunes traversed by two dry, ancient riverbeds, this national park is Africa’s largest and extends for 34,390 sq km (13,278 sq miles), absorbing much of the distinctive red Kalahari desert. Jointly managed by South Africa and Botswana, the border within the park is unfenced and the wildlife is free to migrate.
