... is a substantial conservation area which covers around 2650 square kilometres on the north side of the main Maun-Nata road in the north of Botswana, opposite the much larger Makgadikgadi National Park.

It is comprised of flat and arid Kalahari bush-veld, but features a three very important networks of salt pans, which sustain wildlife throughout the year, but especially during the Nov/Apr green season when the migratory herds pass through. The area is also renowned for its remote islands of historic baobab trees.
