It is also famous for its rich and colorful array of 460 species of birds, including blackfaced babblers and Bradfield’s hornbills. In Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve, groups of Bushmen share the sandveld, or "sand ground," habitat with large herds of blue wildebeest, red hartebeest, eland, gemsbok, and springbok as well as lions, cheetahs, leopards, African wild dogs, and spotted hyenas. The Khaudom Game Reserve in Namibia is home to elephants, buffalo, giraffes and many other animals.
