Kalahari and Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

For those who are prepared to take a step back in time, embark on a Botswana safari vacation, where a wealth of sensory experiences awaits you in the Kalahari and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

The grasslands of the Kalahari together with the lunar expanse of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans are a must-see for all visitors interested in the country’s diversity.

The Makgadikgadi, once an ancient lake that dried up thousands of years ago, is rich in unique geology, archaeology, and anthropology, making it an essential destination for anyone intrigued by the subject of evolution.

During the rainy season, the Salt Pans of Makgadikgadi fill with water and become the breeding ground for huge flocks of flamingo and other migratory birds—characterizing it as one of the most important wetland sites of Africa. The rains also regenerate grasses, attracting the last surviving migration of zebra and wildebeest in southern Africa, as well as brown hyena, meerkat, gemsbok, springbok, and the great black-manned Kalahari lion.
