Geography and History

Gweta is a little old village about 205 km from Maun and 100 km from Nata. This trivial place is  considered the gateway to the Makgadikgadi Pans.

Gweta derived its name from the sound of croaking bullfrogs which bury themselves in the sand until the rainy season arrives and they come out to mate.

During the wet season, Zebra and Wildebeest migrate into the area as well as regular sightings of lion, cheetah and other predators who follow in their wake.

Activities/ Attractions

Things to do in Gweta include:

  • Camping trips to the pans
  • Village tours
  • Visiting the traditional healers in Gweta
  • Bushwalk and fireside chat which is a short guided walk for about two hours through the surrounding bush, concentrating on the environment, the traditional uses of plants and animals, the history of the area and perhaps some local stories

Accommodation

Accommodation available in Gweta is in the form of Campsites and lodges.

Businesses

Since Gweta is relatively small, there aren’t many businesses in the area but the village does have the basics. There are a few food stores, vehicle workshops, petrol stations and restaurants offering traditional food.
