Sense of space

From the air, the Makgadikgadi spreads before you, immense, flat and dazzling, like a slick of white paint seeping from the Kalahari. But it’s only when you set foot on this vast salt pan — once a lake larger than Switzerland — that you truly fall under its spell. Turning slowly full circle, you see the uncluttered curve of the Earth, a land devoid of all life and contour. No hill, depression or landmark gives any bearing to the scene. This is Africa’s ultimate big-sky country: towering cobalt-blue by day, a glittering arch of starlight by night. Silent. Serene. Spellbinding. A space to treasure.
