Makgadikgadi - Great Migrations!

Home to the second largest zebra migration in the world, where over 25,000 zebra migrate to the Boteti River in the dry winter months from their summer grazing ground along the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans.

The Makgadikgadi Pans National park includes a portion of the 12000km2 Makgadikgadi Pans, a massive pan which was once believed to be the bed of a massive inland lake.

The Boteti River system is another unique ecosystem in Botswana and like other east flowing water sources in the country has a reputation for drying up for many years before it commences to flow again. Animals in this area are dependent on the Boteti River for their daily sustenance.

The Makgadikgadi Pans National Park stretches away from the banks of the Boteti River, through its hinterland of scrub and grassland. The river and the nutrient-rich western grasslands supply the essential water and sustenance for the herds that inhabit the park.
