Makgadikgadi & Central Kalahari

Desert, salt pans and sweeping grass plains form one of our planet's most spectacular wilderness areas at Makgadikgadi and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. This dry, arid region poses a complete contrast to the lush wetlands of the Okavango Delta.

Botswana Multi Sector Safari

How you managed to put all that together without one single thing going wrong I don’t know.
