Travel South Africa. 15 minutes of heavy rain in the Kgalagadi

I always asked myself whether it sometimes rains in the Kalahari desert. I found out on my second visit that it most certainly can rain in the Kalahari. The area in South Africa, a semi-arid sandy savanna, might be one of these places where when it rains it rains huge amounts in a short time. When it started to rain it soon felt like being in a car wash facility. The sky quickly turned light blue after the heavy downpour.

Have you ever been in the desert when it started to rain? Looking forward to hearing from you. Here more about my trip to the Kalahari: 20 things to take with you on a trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
