Lying adjacent to the huge Makgadikgadi salt pans is Nxai Pan, a landscape largely covered by dusty grassland and dotted with clusters of umbrella acacia trees and mopane woodland. Nxai Pan has sensational game viewing - famous for its huge springbok population, annual Zebra Migration and being home to rare species including the elusive brown hyena and wild dog.
Holidays to Nxai Pan offer a landscape that is vast and remote but also capable of providing something unique, with some stunning sights to behold. Baines' Baobabs are famous in the area; seemingly unchanged in almost 150 years the seven trees are uniquely found in a cluster, which is rare for baobabs. In the north of the park Khama Khama Pan is worthy of a visit. Game drives are a great way to explore the area but we also recommend a nature walk, led by an experienced Bushmen tracker. Star gazing at Nxai Pan is also a highlight.
