Nata

Nata

Nata is a village in Central District of Botswana. It is located in the northern part of the district, and is served by Nata Airport. The population was 4,150 at the 2001 census. The village of Nata lies along the Nata River, which carries its rainy season flow to the Makgadikgadi Pans, a seasonal hypersaline lake.

This small village at the crossroads for routes north and west provides an important refuelling and stop over service to travellers to Kasane or Maun. Nata is 190km from Francistown and 300km from both Kasane and Maun. It is principally a cattle-farming area but you should allow several days to explore this fascinating area.

The nearby Nata Bird Sanctuary is a community project and a must to visit – 165 bird species including flamingoes and pelicans are common. Sowa Pan with its unique beauty and beaches of rolled quartz pebbles also offers good birding opportunities. Sowa Spit – Botswana’s soda ash industry mines on part of the pan. Eastern Ntwetwe Pan with its fascinating landscapes and beautiful sunsets is also worth visiting.

Travel to the pans is by four-wheel drive vehicles only. Nata basketry is available for purchase at the village. Excellent accommodation is available a short distance east of the village.
