The Kalahari is a huge, dry part of southern Africa. It’s not actually a desert because it does get a little bit of rain every year. Melua and Luca are here in search of a most curious creature. Meerkats! They find a whole family of Meerkats, out on their morning journey to find food. This particular group is used to humans being near them so they allow Luca and Melua to get quite close.
