All the water reaching the Delta is ultimately evaporated while being spread out in an alluvial fan across the Kalahari Desert. This newly appointed 1,000th World Heritage site attracts much wildlife especially during the dry winter months April – October (high season) when animals travel to the Okavango Delta from the surrounding area’s in seek of water, making this area Botswana’s most popular tourist destination and so one of the top African luxury holidays.

Makgadigadi Pans

The Makgadikgadi Pans are large salt pans situated in the dry savannah of North Eastern Botswana. They form the largest salt flats in the world. The pans are all that remains of the formerly enormous Lake Makgadikgadi, which once covered an area larger than Switzerland, but dried up several thousand years ago. The Makgadigadi Pans are made up of a collection of smaller pans namely, Sua Pan, Ntwetwe Pan and Nxai Pan. During Botswana’s wet season the pans attract migrating herds of Wildebeest and large population of Zebra.  The Pans also host populations of migratory birds, such as lesser and greater flamingo’s.
