Makgadikgadi Pans Game Reserve

This reserve is located in the northwestern part of the Makgadikgadi Pans, a 12,000 square kilometer stretch of wilderness consisting of two salt pans - Ntwetwe and Soa - and their associated grasslands. The reserve covers 4,200 square kilometers and contains ever moving wildlife - the lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, springbok, gemsbok, herds of wildebeest and zebra, brown and spotted hyena, and eland and other antelopes. Facilities at the reserve include a network of game viewing tracks, which are suitable for 4X4 vehicles only. So visitors are advised to travel in these vehicles only and carry their own food, water, petrol, spares and other requirements. Visitors also need to take precautions against malaria and take protective measures against dangerous animals while camping. Since it is relatively easy to get lost within the park, visitors should keep to the main tracks and carry a compass and a good map with them.
