The Tourist Attractions of Serowe:
Khama Rhino Sanctuary
The Khama Rhino Sanctuary is a small nature area is a very short drive north of Serowe, and an excellent opportunity to see the endangered white rhinoceros and the much rarer black rhino as well. Though the purpose of the park is to protect these rhinos, you will actually find a much wider range of animals such as the warthog, zebra, giraffe, eland, gazelle, ostrich, hyena and more. For a small park, there is a lot to see.
Central Kalahari Game Reserve
Though it is approximately 200km away (or more if you stay on the main roads), the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the main tourist attraction in the area. This is a major wildlife park that is west of Serowe. Not only is it the largest in Botswana, but it is also the second largest such park in the world. Within the park, you will find giraffes, lions, various antelope species, wildebeest, leopards, warthogs, cheetahs and many more. It is one of the best places to see so many African game animals in one region.
The park itself is quite beautiful and offers a range of landscapes that showcase the somewhat hostile environment of the Kalahari Desert. There are some stretches of barren sand dunes as well as low forests, grassland and dry river valleys. The scenery is amazing no matter what part of the park you are in.
The Makgadikgadi Basin is a huge salt pan, north of Serowe on a main road, and will offer some one-of-a-kind scenery once you get there. The white expanse is captivating though there is not much plant or animal life around through most of the year. During the “rainy season”, there can be huge flocks of migratory birds and herds of zebra and wildebeest clustered around the water.

Rain is still generally minimal though.
