Makgadikgadi Pans is home to the second largest zebra migration in the world. Every year, up to 25,000 zebras move in herds across the plains - from the Okavango to the Makgadikgadi Pans, a journey of more than 150 miles.

The Botswana zebra migration was discovered by accident when a team doing research noted that some of the GPS-collared zebra migrated from parts of the Okavango Delta all the way to the Makgadikgadi grasslands.

If you’re looking to join the adventure and visit Botswana safari - here are 10 reasons why you should experience Botswana’s Makgadikgadi zebra Migration.
