More info about Makgadikgadi Pans

The Makgadikgadi Pans are located halfway between Maun and Nata on the Francistown road in northern Botswana. The main entrance is160 km east of Maun and 45 km west of the small town of Gweta, which has the closest accommodation and gas station. From turning off the main tar road, 8 km of gravel road leads to the park entrance gate, where entry fees are to be paid. A 4x4 vehicle is esssential. It is also wise to carry water and travel in tandem with a second vehicle, as, if there should be a breakdown deep within the park, it may be a long wait before any other vehicle is likely to come along to assist. 2 camping options within the park are available to visitors. The first is Njuca Hills, traditionally spelt Njugha, where two camping sites overlooking the vast open plains, undeveloped except for two pit latrines, afford visitors the opportunity to witness large migrations of zebra and wildebeest during the onset of the rains. Njuca Hills are situated 26 km south of the main entrance gate and it should be noted that no water is available at this site, so campers must be totally self-contained. Kumaga camping ground is 48 km southwest of the main entrance, located on the banks of the Boteti River.
