The Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans are some of the largest salt pans in the world. The contrast between the dry and the wet seasons around these pans is quite spectacular. In the dry season you won't see many animals, but as soon as the rain arrives, the landscape is filled with thousands of animals. During the rainy summer season these pans provide breeding ground for flamingos, pelicans and waders while the surrounding grasslands are home to antelope and are visited seasonally by migrating wildebeest, zebra, and a range of predators. It is best to travel here in your own 4x4 and camp, but bear in mind that the roads are quite treacherous during the rainy season and overlanding becomes very challenging. The pans may seem in the middle of nowhere, but people have been visiting them for millennia. While there, you must visit Lekhubu Island, a rock island with numerous Baobab trees.
