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.
Taking a look at the zebra migration from a different angle. This is an aerial view of the Boteti River where a small clan of zebra wait patiently for water. We are into the peak of the dry season and the zebra are making their way down in numbers to the Boteti River as part of their annual migration between the river and the pans further into the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. #LerooLaTau #Migration #ZebraMigration #Makgadikgadi #Wildlife #Africa #aerial #animals #patterns #aerialphotography
Quenching thirsts on the Boteti River!

The Kalahari Desert is a complete contrast to the Okavango Delta and Linyanti region of #Botswana making is a great addition to any trip. We love Jack’s Camp. It is always a real highlight of anyone’s trip to Botswana particularly when the semi-desert habitat is contrasted with the lush world of the Okavango Delta. Horse riding safaris can be arranged with the pans being the ultimate equestrian playground. A really unique experience is to ride along with the Southern #Zebramigration which passes through in mid-March/April. As you can see here…..#reiselust #reisefieber
