An expanse too great to be travelled in one single trip, the Kalahari Desert is one of the largest deserts in the world and does not only cover Namibia. It is an ecosystem specific to this part of Africa. 

My suggestion:
Depending on where you are, you will have a different experience of the this astonishing and always fascinating desert. 
My review

During my trip to Namibia I spent a weekend in the Kalahari Desert . Instead of staying in Windhoek as planned, Namibian friends of mine gave me a surprise and took me to the Namibian countryside, in other words the desert! 

We chose a lodge in the Kalahari Desert situated on the side of the frontier with Botswana, an astonishing place. Just the colours already, orange with little tufts of yellow grass peeping out in places. Very few trees and little vegetation, dirt roads as far as the eye can see, flat expanses that give rise to drowsiness, exhausting heat in the daytime, even in winter... However, for someone like me living in a big metropolis, this empty immensity of desert had me fascinated. Not one human being for miles around, a delightful near complete solitude.
