Nxai Pan Camp

Explore Botswana

Nxai Pan Camp is located in the Nxai Pan National Park which forms a part of the great Makgadikgadi complex. Sitting on the western edge of the fossil pan from which the camp takes its name the camp faces east over the open grasslands of the pans. 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. Common species to be sighted are zebra, wildebeest, springbok, impala, gemsbok, hartebeest, giraffe, lion, cheetah, wild dog, brown hyena, bateared fox, and sometimes elephant and buffalo.

Nxai Pan Camp has 9 thatched units (including a family unit) specially designed to provide a constant and comfortable temperature throughout the year, when seasonal temperatures can fluctuate from below freezing to well over 45 degrees Celsius.
