The perfect safari holiday in Makgadikgadi

The north-eastern region of the Kalahari Basin contains the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans

A tailor made Makgadikgadi safari is all about visiting the largest salt pans in the world, which cover an area almost the size of Portugal. An area of wide-open uninhabited spaces and endless horizons, the remoteness and inaccessibility of this desert environment gives it a magnetic allure. Yet Makgadikgadi is not always dry. In the wet season (December to April), the rains transform the pans into a huge sheet of water. These attract clouds of flamingos and water-birds, as well as triggering dramatic migrations of wildebeest and zebra of up to ten thousand strong, second only in size to the migration in the Serengeti.

As well as being a haven for wildlife, a luxury Botswana safari in Makgadikgadi offers an opportunity to walk with bushmen trackers, venture into the impenetrable pans on quad bikes and explore remote archaeological sites.
