The White and Roaring Sands are 70km southwest of town. Red sand is blown here into dunes from the Kalahari which is bleached by the water removing the iron oxide. During dry weather, the resulting smooth sand vibrates to make a roaring sound. Lightning often creates fulgurites when it strikes the sand. These are tube-like glazed bits of sand fused by the heat in sections as long as 2m.
Vegetation includes Karroid Kalahari Bushveld, Orange River Nama Karoo and Kalahari Mountain Bushveld.
The entire reserve is open to hiking or drives by vehicle to different points for further exploration. The reserve also includes a Botanical Meander along which the plants are marked, a sunken bird hide which overlooks a waterhole approximately 5m away, enabling eye-level viewing and photographing of birds (over 170 recorded bird species) and game visiting the water hole. There also picnic sites and a much-welcomed swimming pool in the heat of summer.
