UNIQUE, BEWITCHING, AND FASCINATINGSouth east of Chobe are Botswana’s enormous Makgadikgadi salt pans, home to large herds of blue wildebeest, several antelope species, and those international lovers of salt pans, flamingos.
Almost the entire remaining portion of the country is covered by the Kalahari Desert – a varied environment of sand, savannah, and grassland. Although this area of Botswana is only sparsely inhabited by humans, it is one of the richest wildlife regions in all of Africa. Botswana’s two largest parks, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and Gemsbok National Park, are found in this region.
The San tribe or bushmen are the aboriginal inhabitants of Botswana and they have made the Kalahari their home for at least 30,000 years. The San number about 60,000 today, constituting a small but fascinating cultural minority in the country and you can delve into their history and culture at the camps and lodges in this area.
