The Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pan region is situated in the Central District of Botswana, south-east of the Okavango Delta, and consists of four distinct areas. Two of these include the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans (the world’s largest) comprising the 6,500 km2 Ntwetwe Pan and the somewhat smaller Sua Pan. To the North lies Nxai Pan National Park, interspersed with sand flats, rocky islands, peninsulas and desert terrain, and the Makgadikgadi National Park to the south-west, overlapping the western edge of Ntwetwe Pan and comprised mostly of extensive grasslands and acacia woodland with the Boteti River on its western boundary providing a crucial water-source for the area’s wildlife.
