Kalahari Desert and Makgadikgadi Pans

The Makgadigadi Pans in the Kalahari Desert is a relic of one of the world's largest lakes which dried up thousands of years ago as a result of the continued shifting of the earth's crust.   It is a study in primeval emptiness and solitude - a spectacular setting in which to reflect, meditate, and just be.

After the summer rains, it does an about turn and becomes, for a few months, one of the most important wetland sites in Africa.  The pans then fill with water to provide a breeding ground for huge flocks of flamingo and other migratory birds.  At the same time, the rains replenish the grasses which attracts the migration of zebra and wildebeest and their predators.
