Welcome to Nata Conservation Trust

The Nata Sanctuary is situated in an area of remarkable landscape and wildlife, we sit besides the awe-inspiring vastness of the Makgadikgadi Pans on the eastern side between Francistown and Maun or Kasane.

165 different species of birds, including pelicans, spoonbills, eagles, ostriches and both greater and lesser flamingos seasonally make the 23,000ha Nata Sanctuary their home at different times of year. In addition, plains game and predators wander the sanctuary, including springbok, Jackal and wild beast.

For many the most memorable highlight of their visit is simply the vastness and majesty of the pans themselves. Whether teeming with tens of thousands of flamingos in wet years, or an eerie neve-ending horizon of whiteness in dry years, the views can be life-changing.


There is a viewing platform next to the pan which enables an excellent view of the vastness of the pan. Various tracks link the viewing points to the campsite and the Nata river delta area.
