Nata is a small village at the crossroads for routes north and west, provides an
important refuelling and stop over service to travellers to
Maun in Botswana. Nata
is 190 km from Francistown and 300 km 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. Accommodation includes Elephant Sands Lodge, Nata Lodge, Northgate Lodge and several others.
