Pans full of water

With the excellent rains we have had this last 3 months we headed out to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans to see what was happening there.

We had heard that the pans had experienced the most rain for the last 10 years or more.

From the view point at Kaitshe we saw what looked like the ocean – water spread all over and the sides grey mud was very noticeable. Grey means wet and a no go zone.

The Makgadikgadi used to be one of the largest inland lake in Africa. About 20 000 years ago a fault caused to the lake to drain and the result is what we see today.
