Kalahari - Operation Desert Storm

After weeks of pouring over the atlas in search of a suitable destination for his first African Airscapade... Peter finally settled on the Big Sky country of the Kalahari on the northern border between South Africa, Namibia and Botswana..

The term Kalahari is a corruption of the word '˜Kgalagadi', the name of an indigenous tribe who inhabit Botswana. In the Setswana language the word means '˜always dry', although the meaning of the word has been interpreted in a variety of other ways, such as '˜wilderness', '˜thirstland', '˜the land that has dried up' or 'salt pans'.

What is the Kalahari? It is an arid semi-desert region that covers the far north of South Africa, big parts of southern and central Botswana and parts of Namibia and in my opinion one of the best places to go in search of inspiration. I consider it a privilege to experience an African style safari in the Kalahari. This special place stole my heart many years ago and each time I return, I found myself refreshed, invigorated and revitalised.

All this tells you one thing. If you want to create an African inspired artwork then this desert region of Southern Africa is bound to get the creative juices flowing...
