Makgadikgadi Pans Experience

One of the largest Salt Pans in the world this dramatic landscape offers incredible scenes over the endless horizons. Makgadikgadi is home to the famous Kubu Island which hosts a collection of Baobab Trees formed on a granite island jutting out from this great expanse. From approximately January through to April tens of thousands of Wildebeest and Zebra can be spotted during their annual migration. From March until June a sea of Greater Flamingos can be spotted on the southern edge of the pans.

A scenic flight from any pans property offers an entirely unique terrain, not often associated with Botswana and definitely not to be missed.

    This is a wow - must do experience. Never been in a helicopter before. It was so smooth and steady I felt no fear at all. Fantastic experience. Much better than a small plane as it goes low and slow over the bush. The pilot, Andrew, was great, answered all our questions and was very informative. We saw lots of game, and most of all its just incredible to see the scale of the landscape from up there. Wonderful. Thoroughly recommend it.

    Silver Wedding Anniversary Celebrations To celebrate this milestone, we engaged Island Safari Lodge to organize all the activities on our behalf. We wanted the land, water and air experience. I am a very nervous flyer, so they decided to book a Helicopter flip instead. Having never flown in a commercial helicopter before, I had my doubts.

    Just sit back & enjoy the ride The 25 minute trip is excellent value for money. Our pilot, Daniel, made sure we got to see the teeming delta wildlife in all its glory. The open doored helicopter is the ideal way to get a birds eye view of the spectacular scenery and stunning animals of the Okavango. All 3 passenger seats have an unobstructed view for photos, videos or just enjoying the thrill of the ride. You even get a video of the flight emailed to you... read more

    Fantastisches MUSS War eine wunderschöne und fantastische Erfahrung, der Flug über das Delta...hätte ruhig noch länger dauern dürfen. Mit ausgebauten Türen für den perfekten Ausblick ging es übers Delta mit Sonderkurven über Tierherden, wobei jede Seite des Heli bedacht wurde. Zum Schluss gabs noch einen Tiefflug, der definitiv zu schnell vorbei war. Sehr zu empfehlen!
