Terra-Rouge, meaning, red earth, is a sheep and cattle farm in the Kalahari desert, close to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, where only a few decades ago, bushmen used to live.
A good stopover to learn how to experience how to make a living in the arid desert with little water and long distances to travel.
Stay with the family in a big farmhouse that serves as a guesthouse or choose a bungalow further away under huge camelthorn trees.
