African Desert Games

African Desert Games

Nearly one quarter of the continent of Africa is classified as desert, a word from the Latin "Desertus" meaning "left waste". Although there are a number of sub-deserts, there are three principal deserts in Africa; the Sahara that straddles 3,500,000 square miles of North Africa, the Namib Desert in Namibia covering 31,274 square miles and the Kalahari which covers 359,075 square miles of Angola, Namibia and Zimbabwe as well as parts of Botswana and South Africa, although the Kalahari does get rainfall and, as a result, has areas of grasses, shrubs and trees. On this page we present some of the best online African desert games for you to play and enjoy. If you want to know more about the deserts of Africa you can explore the main ones here where you can explore the deserts in photographs, maps and video. We've also provided a live streaming desert webcam below from our sister site.
