Makgadikgadi and the Kalahari Desert – In stark contrast to the Okavango oasis, these two desert regions are surprising in their outstanding beauty and rich historical beginnings.   Ostensibly, dry, endless, stark and unforgiving the area comes alive with  animals sustained by the waterholes that dot the vast salt pans.

Quad bike excursion over moonscape salt pans, opportunities to explore  archeological sites, close interaction with habituated meerkats and star gazing make this area a fascinating addition to ones itinerary.  Home to the San Bushman, visitors are able to gain insight into these fascinating people.
