10nth of May 2017
Kalahari Desert!!! Eerie landscape!!!

We started our trip early in the morning, after having enjoyed a fantastic breakfast, only to confirm what we had already read: that Kalahari Desert was once an unspoiled wetland in contrast with its present condition, where the driest areas usually receive 110–200 millimetres (4.3–7.9 in) of rain per year and the wettest just a little over 500 millimetres (20 in). 

We drove around Makgadikgadi Pan, one of the largest salt flats in the world surrounded by the Kalahari Desert. The pan is all that remains of the formerly enormous Lake Makgadikgadi, dried up ten thousand years ago. 
Makgadikgadi is technically not a single pan but many pans with sandy desert in between, evidence of the many minor lakes that were once surrounding the major one. 



The scenery is alluring and eerie. An eternal flatness… 

We arrived in Letlhakane and then in Serowe, where from we took the A1 till Gaborone.

We crossed the capital of Botswana and continued to South Africa.
We passed through the border post Pioneer Gate-Skilpadshek and continued our journey to Zeerust, where we found the Tholo Lodge, which we spent the night at.
