We drove across the salt pan to get to Kubu Island, which is surrounded by one of the world's largest salt pans. In the dry season, which is now, there is no water and you can see white sand for miles. In the wet season, it is known for its flamingo gatherings. Students enjoyed exploring this surreal landscape. Giant ancient baobob trees are all over the island. The surrounding community considers Kubu Island a sacred place and make trips to the island to make offerings.
