As if a reserve based on a 9km-by-5km and 60m-high white-sand dune system, standing in stark contrast to the surrounding red Kalahari sands, wasn’t enough, Witsand also comes with a soundtrack. When conditions are hot and dry, the sand sings. The ‘roaring sands’ effect is created by air escaping from the tightly packed grains; the bass, organ-like sound is sometimes audible in the reserve office, 5km away.
Activities include hiking, sandboarding (boards per day R150) and mountain biking (bicycles per day R120). Although it's not a major wildlife-watching spot, you can expect to see various antelopes and a host of birdlife. There are no organised activities but you can roam at your will.
