After our trip to the delta, we stayed in Nata for some nights before returning to Gabs. I’ve seen the pans several times before, but never like this: because of heavy rain falls in Zimbabwe, the pans are full of water and look like one giant lake. As far as you can see, the calm and slightly salty water reaches out to the horizon. Compared to last year, only few birds were there yet, but they’ll come once the water levels are lower. Then it will take a few more months until the water has disappeared completely, leaving behind the barren surface. We watched the sunset over the water, something quite unreal considering that you’re in the middle of the desert, but oh-so-beautiful…
