The Makgadikgadi Pan is one is one of the largest salt flats in the world. It lies in north-eastern Botswana, and is surrounded by savanna. In the past, large lake (Lake Makgadikgadi) was located here. The pan is a remnant of this prehistoric lake, which might be a craddle of a modern human.
Due to the region's conditions, most of the wildlife you can find here during the rain season. You can find migrating zebras and wildebeest here and also their predators. You will also meet the cute little meerkarts. As for the birds, Makgadikgadi is a habitat for flamingos, ostriches, plovers, pelicans and much more.
Makgadikgadi is part of the Kalahari basin, yet unique to it, one of the largest salt pans in the world. For most of the year, most of this desolate area remain waterless and extremely dry. Most animals are absent by this time. But during the rain season, the two largest pans - Sowa to the East and Ntwetwe to the west, attract animals (like the zebras and wildbeest) on the grassy plains, and most spectacularly flamingos at Sowa Pans and Nata Bird Sanctuary. Flamingos numbers can run into the tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands, and the spectacle can be completely overwhelmed.
