TRIP TO THE SALT PANS

The Makgadikgadi Salt Pans is one of the largest salt pans in the world. The pans are a salty desert whose only plant life is a thin layer of blue-green algae. Very little wildlife lives here during the harsh dry season of strong hot winds and only salt water, but following a rain, the pan becomes an important habitat for migrating animals including wildebeest and one of Africa’s biggest zebra populations, and the large predators that prey on them. The wet season also brings migratory birds such as ducks, cranes, geese and Great White Pelicans. 

We organize sundowners on the pans to watch the stunning sunset! 

 

CANOEING

Explore the area by canoe! We organize canoeing trips on the Nata River, providing you with the opportunity to spot and get very close to amazing birdlife. At the end of the rain season, when the river is full, we organize trips through Nata town to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

We have 7 canoes, offering seats for 14 people. Lifejackets and paddles provided.
