At first sight it seems as though there is little to see or do in this scrubby, dry desert. How wrong we were! We were fortunate to have the best guide ever - Bart. Thank you Bart for your expertise and enthusiasm. We learned a lot and were constantly surprised by all that the Makgadikgadi National Park has to offer. The camp itself was fine - not very luxurious - but a good fit for the environment. The camp manager Zach was an excellent host. We enjoyed discovering that game-viewing can be just as rewarding without the "big five". Some once-in-lifetime, mind-blowing experiences and wonderful memories.
