Makgadikgadi Pan Adventure


Join us for an unforgettable adventure to the Makgadikgadi Pans of Botswana. This guided tour will take you into the heart of the pans, which cover a 12 000 square kilometer area!
THE RIDE
The ride will start from the Kwa Nokeng Lodge at the Martins Drift Border post where we will spend our 1st night. Early the next morning we are off to the Pans via, Lethlakane - the entry point into the Makgadigadi Pans.
Terrain covered will comprise two-spoor gravel roads and sandy sections prior to entering the pans. From here we will visit Lekhubu Island and make our way through the pans from Ntwetwe South to Ntwetwe North. There are some sandy two-spoor roads between the two pans.
After an adventure filled day we will arrive at our base camp where the Kwa Nokeng staff will already have set up camp and will be waiting to serve you. The camp is set in the pans surrounded by the beauty of the vast emptiness for as far as the eye can see. After watching a memorable sunset over the pans, the evening is spent around the camp fire with good food and good company. You will fall asleep with only a blanket of stars above your head and your bike beside you. That’s right, we will be camping out in TRUE wilderness style. Of course we can provide tents at your request but why not see the sunrise from your bed?
The next morning, after a hearty breakfast, we will head towards the famous Chapman’s & Greens Baobabs. From here we will travel to Gweta to refuel. After lunch we will head south down the Western leg of the pans, stopping over at Gabasadi Island for lunch. We will once again sleep under a blanket of stars on Friday. Saturday morning we will play around the pans a bit before leaving for Kwa Nokeng Lodge where the last night will be spent in Chalets and Luxury tents. We have arranged for the traditional dancers from the Lerala Village to entertain you on your last evening of your adventure.

The Itinerary for a typical Kwa Nokeng Makgadikgadi Adventure will look something like this:
Day 1
13h00 Riders meet at Kwa Nokeng Lodge in Botswana, Martins Drift.
Day 2
08h00: Breakfast
09h00: Depart for Makgadikgadi Pans
12:h00: Lunch at Lekhubu Island

19h45: Dinner
Day 5
09h00: Late breakfast on the lodge’s wooden deck overlooking the Limpopo
11h00: Depart for South Africa
LEVEL OF SKILL
We would recommend this ride for an intermediate to an experienced rider that has completed an advanced off road course.
The Pans themselves are easy, open riding, but the sections in between require a strong technique. This adventure is open to anyone on a dual purpose bike over 600cc.
