Gweta is a small village in Botswana. It is located at about 205 kilometres from Maun and about 100 kilometres from Nata. Gweta is considered the gateway to the Makgadikgadi salt plains. It is a great way to refuel and shop before you explore the amazing salt marshes. You can choose to explore the marshes yourself with your 4×4 car or go on a guided tour. Also popular at the quad tours, in which you explore the gigantic plains on a quad with a guide.

The name Gweta comes from the sound made by the bullfrogs, which bury themselves in the sand here until the rainy season.

Various trips from Selfdrive4x4 take you through Gweta and the Makgadikgadi salt pans.
