Nature has a lot of mysteries and at Makgadikgadi, there is one huge mystery to unravel as the place is riddled with dried-up salt pans in this part of Kalahari Desert. History dictates that it was formed after a huge lake dried up. During the wet season though, the desert transforms into a vegetative ground with grass sprouting and attracting herds of zebras, antelopes and flamingoes.
