In the Wild: Seasonal Sightings of Botswana Wildlife
Secrets of the Makgadikgadi
The green season with its seasonal rains is upon us and Uncharted Africa Safari co. would like to share one of the greatest Makgadikgadi secrets.
In Botswana rain is the “currency of life” and it is incredible to see how, as soon as the rain arrives, the desert transforms into a green oasis. Within days of the first rain, thousands of zebra and wildebeest make their way across Makgadikgadi National Park and through the heart of Jack’s Camp. As the National Geographic “Great Migrations” series has depicted, some of the zebra come from as far as the southern parts of the Delta, emphasizing just how incredibly important the Makgadikgadi area is to these animals. This is the second longest migration of the African ungulates, with an estimated 35,000 to 75,000 animals, the majority being zebra, participating each year. Close behind the zebra and wildebeest are the predators and it is during the rainy season that you frequently encounter lion, cheetah, and even leopard and wild dog. The open savannah surrounding Jack’s Camp host thousands of grazing zebras and wildebeest. Uncharted Africa’s guests enjoy this great spectacle from their private verandah or while relaxing at the pool pavilion. It is truly real adventure in unreal style.

Riding on the Moon with Equitrekking
Covering over 7,000 sq. miles and visible from space, the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi are glittering remnants of an ancient inland lake. Zebra migrate there during the rainy season and millions of flamingoes flock there to breed. You do not simply "see" the Makgadikgadi, you experience it.
From racing quad bikes over barren pans to getting up close and personal with habituated meerkats, to dining out under an endless blanket of stars, the Makgadikgadi is truly an amazing place to visit.
And now there is a thrilling new way to experience the Makgadikgadi: on horseback! Guided horseback safaris are now offered for experienced equestrians in the Makgadikgadi pans through Ride Botswana with David Foot Safaris. David has been leading horse safaris in Africa for over 17 years.
Darley Newman, producer and host of Equitrekking TV, recently rode the pans while filming an upcoming television episode for PBS. Click here to read about Darley’s experience in the pans and to see the beautiful photos she captured along the way.
