Welcome to Aha Hills
Straddling the Botswana–Namibia border, the 700-million-year-old limestone and dolomite Aha Hills rise 300m from the flat, thorny Kalahari scrub. Due to the almost total absence of water, there's an eerie dearth of animal life – there are few birds and only the occasional insect. However, the main attraction of the Aha Hills is their solitude and isolation. When night falls, the characteristic sounds of Southern Africa are conspicuously absent, though the resulting stillness is near perfect.
With precious few reliable maps, the Aha Hills present the perfect opportunity to put the guidebook down and explore a region that very few tourists visit.
