Details of Kalahari Desert

The largest continuous stretch of sand in the world, the Kalahari Desert is perhaps misnamed as it gets too much rain each year to technically qualify as a desert. In the spring, the plains are alive with colour as wildflowers bloom, while the summer rains bring a lush carpet of greenery.
