Welcome to Makgadikgadi Pans National Park


Out in the east of the park, the wildlife is less accustomed to vehicles, but watch for zebras, gemsboks and the occasional predator. Birdlife is especially rich along the Boteti River, from the plague-like red-billed queleas to much rarer African fish-eagles and wattled cranes. Out in the east, you're more likely to see vultures and birds of prey.
