If there is one place bird-watchers must definitely visit, it is Nata Lodge close to the well-known Nata Sanctuary in Botswana. Nata Lodge is right on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans – the largest salt pans in the world and the remains of Africa’s largest inland sea. The Nata River forms a delta which feeds Sanctuary’s Sua Pan. This is the breeding ground for a huge numbers of water birds such as flamingos and pelicans in their thousands, transforming the shore line into a pink haze blending into the western sky. Nata Lodge is surrounded by many trees and these are home to many birds of different species.
Quiet, comfortable and a good stopover for an early drive into Makgadikgadi Pans.
