Lying between the perennial waterways of the Okavango Delta to the northwest and the arid Kalahari to the south are the legendary Makgadikgadi Pans, one of the largest salt complexes in the world. Some 12,000 square kilometres in extent, these salt flats - consisting of two large pans, Sowa and Ntwetwe, and a myriad smaller ones - are Botswana's best-kept secret and one of its fastest-growing tourist destinations.
In this first, fully illustrated guidebook on the pans, Grahame McLeod explores this fascinating region, revealing its varied landscapes, geology, wildlife, vegetation and climate. Along the way he uncovers its diverse attractions: Nata Bird Sanctuary, Lekhubu Island, the Boteti River, Mosu Escarpment, Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans National Park, and the small towns and villages along the pans' fringes.
An inspiring read and packed with more than 200 photographs, this guide also includes:
- detailed full-color maps
- advice on where to stay
- activities and events throughout the year
- travel details, including contact information
Informative, practical and user-friendly, this is an invaluable on-the-spot guide for all visitors to Botswana and the alluring salt sea of the Makgadikgadi Pans.
