Description

Flowing white dunes are cradled by contrasting red Kalahari sand. This is the home of the famous Roaring Sands (Brulsand) of the Kalahari and over 150 bird species.
Gemsbok, Red hartebeest, Springbok, Duiker and Steenbok are abundant here and we have a small herd of Kudu resident on the reserve.

Witsand Nature Reserve accommodation includes ten luxury, self-catering chalets (one with facilities for the disabled), group accommodation and caravan & camping sites. We have a conference facility (catering on request), swimming pools, a kiosk, dune boards, information centre and bird-hide. There is also a Botanical Meander of 3.2km with 43 plant species (sign-posted in 5 languages) and visitors are free to explore any part of the reserve by foot.

The Witsand System as it is today, is situated approximately 1200m above sea level, and comprises a combination of linear and parabolic dunes which vary between 20m and 30m in height. The dunes run a length of 9km in a NE - SW direction and are up to 5km in width.

The Roaring Sand or Brulsand is probably the most well known feature of the Witsand Nature Reserve, and one of the main attractions visitors hope to experience. In order to emit their characteristic sound, which may vary from a hum to a roar, the sand needs to be warm, dry and clean.
