Nata and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, Botswana

The Nata river carries its seasonal flow into the Makgadikgadi Salt pans where the water slowly sinks into the sand.

The Makgadikgadi salt pan is situated in the middle of the dry savanna of north-eastern Botswana, is one of the largest salt flats in the world.

The pan is all that remains of the formerly enormous Lake Makgadikgadi, which once covered an area larger than Switzerland, but dried up several thousand years ago.
