SKU: N/A Category:


Kubu Island is surrounded by the unlimited white expanse of salt of the Sua Pan.
On sunny days the blue sky seems infinite and the pan is of almost blinding white, while, when the sun sets over the pan, the warm light illuminates the island and its majestic baobabs.
At night, when the moon shines in the sky, the white of the expanse of salt reflects so much light that there are shadows creating a surreal atmosphere.
On Kubu Island there are several  baobab that are estimated to be 3,000 or 4,000 years old.
They are impressive not only for their size but also because they seem to have so much to tell about the history of this island. They guard the secrets of this magnificent paradise.

Please note that there is no phone signal or internet connection at the Lost Island of the Baobabs and with no electricity either, it’s advisable to bring a fully-charged set of spare camera batteries with you.

The ability to disconnect from the rest of the world adds to the uniqueness of this place as you become one with nature.


The Makgadigadi Pan is a large salt pan in northern Botswana, the largest salt flat complex on the planet.

These salt pans cover approximately 16,000 km2 and form the bed of the ancient Lake Makgadikgadi that began evaporating millennia ago.

This huge territory, that contains several salt depressions, in prehistoric times was the basin of an immense lake, that is estimated to have covered an area of 80,000 square kilometres.


Nata Bird Sanctuary is located in the North-Eastern part of the Sua Pan.

During the rainy season, when the Nata river pours its waters into the pan, it becomes a paradise for birds, especially for the aquatic ones.

In particularly rainy years, tens, if not hundreds of thousands of flamingos gather here to mate, to nest and grow their chicks. This is one of the most important places in the world for the survival of the lesser pink flamingos and the greater pink flamingos.
