Overview

The casual visitor to Botswana could be excused for seeing the country as kilometer upon kilometer of flat, desolate scrubland with little or no surface water. However, to the north lies the magnificent Okavango waterway, with its green and fertile plains, flowing straight into the sea of sand, the Kalahari Desert, and creating a unique natural wonderland – home to a multitude of Africa’s Fauna and Flora. Almost a quarter of this country is devoted to wildlife sanctuaries and these remote and unspoilt wilderness areas are widely acknowledged as offering the finest game viewing in Africa.

DAY 2: Makgadikgadi Pans National Park

Today we venture eastward into the spectacular Makgadikgadi Salt Pans after breakfast. Besides the stark scenery, the Pans are known for their prolific birdlife and the other desert adapted animals.

We will enter Makgadikgadi Pans National Park in the west. After entry we will spend most of the day on game drive in this truly unique area where we will be searching for the animals surrounding the edge of the pans.

We slowly make our way to the edge of this magical wonderland. Depending on the time, we will then be able to take a walk out into the pans and experience the beauty of “Nothing”. No sound, No people, No traffic!!! Just us. Although we set up tents, we encourage clients to enjoy a night out under the canopy of stars. If the weather permits, this night you will be able to witness some of the finest stargazing evenings as you slowly fall asleep.

Today we travel north towards Nxai pan, which is part of the larger Makgadikgadi Pans in northeastern Botswana. Nxai Pan National Park is a seasonal home to large herds of zebra and home to the famous Baine’s Baobabs. Today we will be exploring another section of the park in search of some Giraffe, Zebra, Elephant bulls as well as any predators we could find in this area. After our full day game drive, we camp in the park at the famous Baine’s Baobabs where star-trek photography is a must under these ancient looking trees. We spend the night under the stars listening to any sounds that the African bush has in store for us.
