Wny Travel to Makgadikgadi Pans? by

The Makgadikgadi Pans are a series of ancient salt pans in north-eastern Botswana, scattered between the desert sands of the Kalahari over an area of over 15 000 km2. It is a dry and isolated area of extreme, arid, beauty with land and skies that stretch to the ends of the earth.

Highlights

  • Experience the sensation of being in the middle of nowhere - African bush at its best - silent, desolate, achingly beautiful
  • Explore the beauty of the enormous and mythical-looking Baobab tree
  • In the wet season: see the once-in-a-lifetime sight of thousands of flamingos doing their thing
  • Star-spotting has never been better, with no light pollution for thousands of kilometres
  • See the wildebeest, zebra and other migratory herds when the rains arrive, followed closely by the predators that hunt them

Fauna & Flora

Due to the arid nature of the climate, and the saltiness of the pans, fauna and flora are limited. This, in itself, is part of the reason for the stark beauty of this dry region.

In the salt pans themselves, which are dry for most of the year, a thin layer of blue-green algar grows. Surrounding the pans are muddy marshes and grass savannah. Dotted between them are the trees that are synonymous with Africa - Acacias, Baobabs and Mopane.

During the rains, huge herds of migratory animals pass through - wildebeest, zebra and many species of antelope - followed closely by predators - lion, cheetah and the brown hyena. When it's dry, a number of desert-adapted animals, like springbok, share the land with their desert counterparts - tortoises, lizards and snakes.
