Nxai Pan Camp

Nxai Pan National Park lies just north of the Maun-Nata road and adjoins Makgadikgadi Pans National Park on its northern border. Nxai Pan was originally state land and an area of 1676 square km was declared a game reserve in 1970, and then in 1992 the boundaries were extended to include Baines Baobabs to give the present total area of 2578 square km and National Park Status was granted.

The Nxai Pans were once part of the great lake that covered central Botswana – which included The Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi and Lake Ngami to name a few. The Pan itself is another fossil lakebed about 40 square km in size. The landscape is largely covered by grassland and dotted with clusters of umbrella acacia tree’s and mopane woodland in the north. During the rains from November to April the pans become covered in grass which is a landscape very similar to the Kalahari.

Nxai Pan Camp is situated in the tree line with eight purpose built and solar powered desert rooms, all with thatched roofs and insulation so it is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. All the rooms are solar powered with ceiling fans and outside showers, a private viewing deck and are connected by slightly raised walkways. The main area consists of a dining room, lounge area and a viewing deck. There will also be a swimming pool, library and curio shop soon.

Activities on offer are game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles and historical tours to Baines Baobab Tree, nature walks. The camp can be accessed by 4x4 vehicles or you can fly.

The camp is booked on an all inclusive basis with accommodation, all meals and drinks (including premium drinks), activities and laundry service. Children as of six years are welcomed here on request.
