About the book: 
Tucked away between the perennial waterways of the Okavango Delta and the arid Kalahari to the south are the legendary Makgadikgadi Pans. Some 12,000 square kilometres in extent, these salt flats, consisting of two large salt pans, Sowa and Ntwetwe, and a myriad smaller ones, are Botswana’s best-kept secret and one of its fastest-growing tourist attractions.
 
In this first guidebook on the pans and their environs, Makgadikgadi Pans – A Traveller’s Guide to Botswana’s Salt Flats  explores this fascinating region, bringing to life its geology, wildlife, vegetation, climate, local economy and key destinations: Nata Bird Sanctuary, Lekhubu Island, the Boteti River, Mosu Escarpment, Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pan National Park, and the towns and villages that fringe the pans. Full-colour maps and lively photographs support the text.
 
Additional features include advice on where to stay; sights to see and how to get there; activities on offer throughout the year; contact details; and a travel advisory. Informative, practical and user-friendly, Makgadikgadi Pans  is an inspiring guide for all visitors to Botswana and the alluring salt sea of the Makgadikgadi.
