DAY 1 & 2
BOTSWANA'S ZEBRA MIGRATION WITH ON THE BOTETI RIVER
On arrival at the Maun airport, you will be met by one of our Desert & Delta Safaris welcoming staff who will assist you with your light aircraft flight to Leroo La Tau on the edge of the Boteti River. Spend two nights at Leroo La Tau in one of our spacious chalets overlooking the Boteti River and Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. On the western boundary of the renowned Makgadikgadi Pans National Park lies the Boteti River. Owing to the arid nature of the park, the river and the nutrient-rich western grasslands supply the essential water and sustenance for the wildlife that inhabit the region. The Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is home to the second-largest zebra migration in the world, where thousands of zebra migrate to the Boteti River in the dry winter months (May to Oct) from their summer grazing ground further inside the park. The fascinating contrast between the Boteti River Valley and arid National Park makes it a fascinating region to include in any Botswana safari.Find out more about Leroo La Tau Find out more about Makgadikgadi Pans National Park
