Makgadikgadi Pans and Nxai Pan National Park are vast grasslands stretching far beyond the horizons. On the onset of the rainy season the grasslands attract large herds of zebra, wildebeest, springbok duiker, bushbuck and gemsbok as well as Big Cats including lions, cheetah and hyenas. It is during this season that game watching at Makgadikgadi Pans and Nxai Pan National Park is at its best.
In the event of flooding an extra-ordinary transformation takes places at Sowa Pan where crustaceans hatch and algae blooms on the saltpans attracting tens of thousands stands of greater and lesser flamingos as well as pelicans. African safaris and holiday activities include; game drives, camping safaris, quad-biking expedition, safaris photography and visit to ancient Bushmen villages of the San People.
The geographical features of Makgadikgadi Pans and Nxai Pans are characterized by riverine woodland, scrubland, pure grassland and salt pans. Palm groves, scrubs and Baobab trees are predominant on these parks.
