Discover the Magic of Makgadikgadi: A Journey Through the Heart of Botswana’s Elephant Country
Makgadikgadi Pans National Park in Botswana is a surreal and magical place, filled with an abundance of elephants. It is truly a sight to behold, as hundreds of elephants gather in the river, playing, swimming, and taking mud baths, all while engaging in playful skirmishes and tender moments.
Walking through the golden grasslands, one might come across a solitary elephant, making its way across the plains. The stark contrast between the elephant’s grey skin and the blue sky is a breathtaking sight. As you admire the elephant from afar, you may wonder if it is seeking refuge from the scorching African sun or if it is in search of water, which can be found 50 km away.
The plains are dotted with thousands of zebra, serving as a reminder of the safety that the wide-open spaces offer. Meanwhile, flocks of ostriches can be seen seemingly chatting with one another, much like high school students in Australia.
Makgadikgadi is a place that will forever be remembered and treasured, and I invite you to join me on this journey through the heart of elephant country. Enjoy a selection of my favorite photos below.
