Kalahari Desert and Makgadikgadi Pans holidays showcase Botswana’s extraordinary diversity from the Kalahari grasslands to the lunar-like Makgadikgadi salt pans. During the green season (November to April) this semi-arid expanse is miraculously transformed, attracting thousands of lions and leopards, kudu and springbok, among many others. The world's largest super-lake once occupied the current site of the Makgadikgadi Pans.
Today, this salty stretch attracts a wealth of spectacular birdlife, including vast flocks of pelicans, flamingoes and cranes. Add to this the astonishing ancient cave paintings at Tsodilo Hills that date back many thousands of years; the prospect of meeting meerkats up close; quad biking across the desert; and sleeping under the stars - and this trip sounds anything but dry!
