A desert may seem an unusual choice for a wildlife or safari holiday. However, rather than being barren and devoid of life, these desert destinations in Africa teem with flora and fauna. From magnificent desert rhinos and desert elephants to tiny reptiles and succulent plants that have adapted to the harsh desert landscape, there is plenty to see and photograph. From the Namib Desert in Namibia to the famous Kalahari Desert in South Africa and Botswana, Africa offers a range of desert safari destinations and tours. Accommodation options range from rustic campsites under the stars to super-luxury lodges fit for kings and queens. A desert safari will change your life!
