Kalaharo Desert Festival

Art, Cultural & Heritage Festival

The most northern part of the Northern Cape close to Botswana and Namibia is known as the Kalahari and the land of the Komani San community. Each year the community invites visitors to join them as they host the annual Kalahari Desert Festival.

The Festival celebrates the rich diversity of indigenous groups through the arts and the festival is a convergence of dramatic dance, music, drama and storytelling under the Kalahari’s towering red dunes. The Khomani act as your guide as they share their homeland, community and heritage with the festival’s patrons.

The events stretch over three days and three nights and after the warm welcome you will receive from the Kalahari people, we know you will want to stay longer!  Food and drink will be on offer throughout the festival as well as a craft market further expanding your knowledge into the Khomani peoples’ culture.

For a truly inspiring experience, book your tickets, choose the perfect accommodation in this picturesque part of the country and enjoy the warm hospitality of the Khalahari people – it promises to be spectacular and rejuvenating!
