Salt pans - Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

 
Natural salt pans are found in desert or semi-desert areas and on the way to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, I passed this one.
Pans are found where water has evaporated and the minerals are left exposed to the sun.


They have developed over thousands of years and especially when flying over the region, the white gleam stretching for many miles can be easily seen.
