Details: Your first stop is Leroo la Tau at the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, where thousands of zebra, wildebeest and other plains game congregate along the Boteti River, especially between November and May. Relax in the plunge pool, watch wildlife from the deck or go on a game drive to explore the park.
