Makgadikgadi Pans
Tailor-made Makgadikgadi Pans Holidays

One of the largest salt flats in the world, the Makgadikgadi Pans are an astonishing visual treat. This salt-encrusted expanse resembles a moonscape with undisturbed views of a flat horizon and that satisfying crunching sound below your feet. During the rains, the water attracts flocks of flamingoes that settle their pink wings on vivid blue lakes, while in the dry season it’s easier to spot the oft-camouflaged game in the wide-open terrain.

While the land is flat, the safari here is anything but bland. Few places in the continent offer thrilling horseback safaris like the ones in the Makgadikgadi that reveal sights such as vast herds of zebra and wildebeest migrating to the grasslands. It’s the only place in the world where you can go quad biking over the brilliant white pans to remote spots for sundowners and embark on explorative walks with the Zu’Hoasi bushmen who will unveil all the intricacies of this ancient arid desert.

Unravel the surprises of the Makgadikgadi Pans with insiders whose knowledge opens up this extraordinary place, whether that’s visiting a curious meerkat colony at sunrise or embarking on a night drive spotting bat-eared foxes and brown hyena.
