Nxai Pan is located on the western edge of the Nxai Pan National Park which borders with the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in Botswana. The biggest draw to this area is the famous Baines Baobabs and the migration of thousands of zebra - the second largest animal migration in Southern Africa.
The eco-friendly camp which faces east over the open grasslands of the pans boasts 9 Thatched Units including a Family Unit that are specially designed to provide a constant and comfortable temperature throughout the year. Each suite has an en-suite bathroom with double vanities and both indoor and outdoor showers, a lounge area, fan, in-room safe, writing desk, and a viewing deck that overlooks the vast pan and the waterhole in front of the camp, where elephant are frequent visitors. The Family Unit has an additional twin-bedded bedroom.
The camp facilities include a dining area, bar, lounge area, boma, laundry service, and a swimming pool.
The pans were once part of the super lake that covered much of central Botswana, including Lake Ngami and the Okavango DeltaThe landscape is largely covered by grassland and dotted with clusters of umbrella acacia trees and mopane woodland to the north. During the rains, from November to late March, the landscape changes to lush green, the pans become covered in succulent grasses which attract large herds of antelope. The area is well known for large numbers of springbok and during rainy season oryx, elephant and zebra migrate to the region. The giraffe are also often seen in the area in large herds with up to 30 in a group. These large herds attract many predators – lion, cheetah, jackal, spotted and brown hyena and sometimes the endangered wild dog and the secretive leopard. During the rainy season, birdlife here is prolific, many species being different to what one would see in the Delta – it is definitely a birders paradise.
Activities offered at Nxai Pan are game drives, day trips to the famous Baines’ Baobabs and Khama Khama Pan, star gazing, as well as nature walks with Bushman trackers.
Nxai Pan Camp is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for a unique safari experience.
Accommodation, all meals, all beverages, scheduled game viewing activities, daily laundry, emergency medical evacuation cover, and a meet & greet service at Maun airport when being transferred with Moremi Air.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
