Moving away from the bountifulness of the Okavango Delta, the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park stands in stark contrast. Home to some of the biggest salt pans worldwide, it is a different kind of paradise. A vast dreamscape, it offers a solitude from the pace of the African bush. Despite its landscape, season dependent, its surrounding grassland attracts a Zebra migration that closely rivals that of the Serengeti in Tanzania. For an adrenalin rush, ride quad bikes across the salt pans with nothing but limitless silence and space surrounding you. Meet the friendly and curious resident meerkats who may, if you’re lucky enough, utilise your height as a vantage point as they look out over the salt pans for predators.
