Special Place: Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

The Makgadikgadi Pan, located in the heart of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, is the world’s largest salt pan landscape and undoubtedly one of our all-time favorite places “to be”! 

Just some of the reasons we love it:

  • Endless horizons, interrupted only by a scattering of baobabs and desert palms
  • The feeling of remoteness and expanse fills the soul
  • Ahhh… the sunsets!
  • Watch the planetarium of stars unfold
  • Spend time walking with the San bushmen, learning about their culture and how they have lived off this land for centuries
  • Observe desert adapted wildlife including the black-maned Kalahari lion and rare brown hyena
  • Get up close and personal with wild meerkats
