Makgadikgadi Salt Pan Safaris

Makgadikgadi Pans lie deep in the heart of north-eastern Botswana and provide a remote and untouched safari experience, offering sublime peace and solitude.

The salt pans lie southeast of the Okavango Delta and are surrounded by the arid and barren Kalahari Desert. The remains of a great lake, Makgadikgadi consists of two large saltpans and a number of smaller pans in this barren wilderness. After the summer rains, a few centimetres of water fill the pans, awakening dormant fish and other aquatic creatures that attract a variety of flamingos, pelicans and wading birds. In addition to the migrating birds, the summer months also bring the spectacular migration of thousands upon thousands of zebra, and the predators that follow closely behind.

The period following the summer rains, between January and April, is the best time to visit Makgadikgadi Pans. In the dry season, the pans dry out entirely, leaving a hauntingly barren landscape of stark, cracked mud, inhabited by very few species. No vegetation can grow on the salty surface of the pans, and so they remain barren until the rains come again. On the fringes of the pans, grasslands and baobab trees can be found.
