1-Day Makgadikgadi National Park


Discover one of the best locations to observe the Botswana Pans. The Makgadikgadi boasts a huge viewing deck that guarantees the best perspective views and animals. Go on a game drive for the remainder of the day. The pans are home to numerous significant prehistoric sites and fossil lakes that have produced some intriguing archaeological finds. The Makgadikgadi Pan is one of the world’s largest salt flats, and it is located in the middle of the savanna in north-eastern Botswana. A former lake with a surface area of 80,000 km2 (30,888 miles2) and a depth of 30 m (90 ft), Lake Makgadikgadi, is what is left of the pan. After the lake dried up 10,000 years ago, all that was left was a flat area of clay covered with a layer of minerals and light-reflecting white salt.

Together with the Sua, Ntwetwe, and Nxai Pans, which are all frequently visited pans in the Kalahari Basin, they make up the largest salt pans in the world. This area’s western border is where the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is located, and the Nxai Pans National Park is right above it, making it simple to explore both on a single safari.

Get picked up from the hotel reception at 0500 in the morning after an early start. When the seasonal rains arrive, we travel to Makgadikgadi National Park, where the wide grasslands draw grazers in large numbers, which in turn draw an impressive variety of predators.

There are numerous significant prehistoric sites and fossil lakes in the Makgadikgadi pans, and these locations have produced some intriguing archaeological finds. We’ll take a whole day during our stay to explore this lovely wildlife area. The Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana are one of the best places to see animals and are yet largely unexplored. Before heading back to Maun, spend the day game viewing with our professional guides. Relish drinks and a delectable meal along the way. We leave the park on a leisurely game drive after lunch, during which you will observe a variety of animals, and arrive in Maun about 1730 hours.
