Karahari Desert Map


This is a map of the Kalahari desert that I made. If you’d like to use it on your site, please let me know by emailing me @ kaotic_ken(at)yahoo.com.

The Karahari desert is located in Botswana and parts of South Africa and Namibia. The total area is estimated to be about 260,000 sq km large and is part of a larger Kalahari Basin. The desert is generally flat with an elevation of about 1000 meters above sea level.

The Kalahari is semi-arid with droughts occuring frequently. The regions receives an average of 200 milimeters of precipitation a year mainly between October and May. The temperature can reach as high as 45 degrees celcius in summer and as low as below freezing in winter.
