Central Kalahari (CKGR) and Khutse Game Reserve

Situated in the center of Botswana, these two adjoining Game Reserves form part of the Kalahari Basin, the world’s  largest continuous stretch of sand. Although there are large open grasslands, the Game Reserves are both largely covered with semi-arid shrub savanna and scrub. There are strips of Acacia woodland and larger areas of Terminalia sandveld. Pans, shallow depressions periodically containing water, are widespread. Check List
