Makgadikgadi Pans

Tourist attractions Makgadikgadi Pans

Set in the heart of the dry savanna of northeastern Botswana, the Makgadikgadi Pan is the world's largest network of salt pans stretching over 3900km and formed on the bed of the ancient Makgadikgadi Lake that began evaporating millions of years ago. Visiting Makgadikgadi is a unique salt desert experience: in the dry season, this vast expanse of sun-baked salt glistens in the light, and when the rains come, the pan is home to flamingos as well as one of Africa's largest zebra populations, whose annual migration is a wonder to behold. Visitors can immerse themselves in the stark beauty of this incredible landscape, spot a host of wildlife and enjoy a number of activities, including horse riding safaris, game drives, and excellent birdwatching.
