The Nwetwe Pan is a large salt pan within the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana. The Nwetwe is one of three large pans within the Makgadikgadi, the other two being Nxai Pan and Sua Pan. In the present day Nwetwe Pan is a seasonal lake with filling occurring in the rainy season. Nwetwe was first described to the European world by David Livingstone, pursuant to his explorations in this region. Significant archaeological recoveries have occurred within the Nwetwe Pan, including stone age tools from people who lived in this area, in an earlier time of prehistory when a large year around lake occupied the Nwetwe Pan area within the Makgadikgadi.
