One of the main reasons people choose to visit Botswana in February is the zebra migration. This sees hundreds of Burchell’s zebra making their way from the Boteti River (south of the Okavango Delta) and arriving in to the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans. If you are a fan of zebra this can be a sight to rival the great wildebeest migration of the Serengeti and Masai Mara. The pans have been transformed from arid to shallow streams and the big predators follow their prey down to the Kalahari. You can also visit in March to see the zebra in the pans.
