Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Makgadikgadi (Boteti River)

overview

Safari Highlights

From the Kalahari side on the open plains you may see hartebeest, gemsbok and springbok as well as lion, cheetah, kudu, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest among others. The timing of our visit is significant as the seasonal movement of wildlife varies throughout the year. Following the annual summer rains from November to April, wildlife tends to disperse away from permanent surface water, moving to richer pastures in the Kalahari where rain-filled pans sustain them during the peak breeding season. The Makgadikgadi becomes the summer headquarters for thousands of zebra and blue wildebeest. However, during the dry winter months after the outlying pans have dried up, the main herds of elephant, zebra and wildebeest (and their accompanying predators) are found in the corridor of the Boteti River.
