Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pans

BOTSWANA

LUXURY SAFARIS ON THE MAKGADIKGADI PANS

The Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans are vast expansive saltpans - 16 000 km2 of flat, white saltpan located in the central Kalahari region of Botswana, being the remnants of a long lost lake of millions of years ago.

The appeal of the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans lies in their expansive nothingness, in their hypnotic sense of endless distance and detachment from the outer world, the stillness and loneliness of total isolation, and the true sense of wilderness. It is one of the only places in the world where silence remains complete.

For most of the year the area is extremely dry, but the rainy season starting in November brings water to the plains that can remain until April, creating a fantastic environment for bird watching when flocks of thousands of flamingos descend upon the pans.

A quad-biking expedition, speeding across the expansive saltpans for what seems like forever is, to us, one of the great safari experiences.

The experience here is unique, and appreciation of this area of Botswana is subtle one. Many guests prefer to head to the famed Okavango Delta, located just to the north, but we like it and recommend it whenever it fits in well.
