Bird Watching in Botswana

Bird watching has become increasingly popular in recent years and bird lovers are willing to scour the globe to catch a glimpse of a rare bird in the wild.  Bird watching is a popular activity on every continent, but some natural environments are more well known for their appeal and native species than others.  The Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana is just one such area.  Book a cheap car rental in Botswana to search for your favorite African bird.

Flamingo Migration, Makgadikagadi pans

Described as a vast open space, the Makgadikagadi Pans are the remains of a vast, ancient super-lake that dried up around 10,000 years ago.  What are called "salt pans" amount to an immense stretch of desert covered with glistening salt.  Although desert-adapted wildlife can be found here year round the most magical time to rent a car hire in Botswana and visit the salt pans is during the rainy season.  Waterbirds abound, as do wildebeest, zebra, and some pretty popular flamingos.  

Although you might think a desert would be a boring and barren time, there are plenty of activities and entertainment to keep everyone in your group engaged.  Game drives, the best star-gazing on earth, 4x4 biking, and more are all available to keep African adventurers excited.  The area is also home to some of the most rugged and enigmatic people on earth, the Bushmen of Botswana.  Known as the San people, they have perfected a balance of life that allows them to survive in this desolate landscape, and you can learn all about it on a Botswana safari by car rental.
