If we had visited Botswana’s
a little over 10,000 years ago…
…we would have been in the middle of
which covered an area ranging
between 80,000 and 275,000 square kilometres
(or, 30,888 to 106,178 sq miles)
and was up to 30 metres deep.
In 2014, however, it was simply acre upon acre of salt
with the rocky out crop known as Lekhubu Island
the only visible destination.
For 360 degrees all we could see was nothing
and yet I would still recommend it as
an overnight stop just to experience
this vast expanse of solitude.
The sunset and sunrise were glorious.
