Nxai Pan Camp is located in the Nxai Pan National Park which forms a part of the great Makgadikgadi complex.

Excellent game viewing is possible from the comfort of the rooms as the water hole in front of the camp draws a multitude of mammal species. Wildlife viewing is seasonal, and dependent on if and when the rains come, and when animals migrate. If the rains have been good, December to April is the best time to visit.
