Nxai Pan National Park was once part of the great lake that covered central Botswana, which included The Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi and Lake Ngami. The area is covered in by grassland and clusters of acacia trees and mopane woodland. Nxai Pan is well known for its huge springbok population and once the rains have started, gemsbok, elephant and zebras migrate to the region. Large herds of giraffe can also be seen with up to 30 in a group. These all attract many predators, including lion, cheetah, jackal, leopard and wild dog.
The camp opened in February 2009 and has nine guest tents, one of which is a family room sleeping up to four people. There is a central area consisting of a dining room, lounge and viewing deck. Additional facilities planned include a swimming pool, library and curio shop. Guests staying here can enjoy game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, guided game walks and historical tours to the famous Baines Baobabs and the Pandamatenga Cattle Trail.
From Victoria Falls to Chobe and the Okavango Delta and on to the Boteti River near Makgadikgadi.
An exciting green season opportunity to visit some of the best wildlife camps in southern Africa at a very special price.
"Excellent facilities in the rooms, which were clean and spacious. Meals were always very good and it was very kind of them to do a birthday cake the day I was there. A good view of elephants at the waterhole from the main building, plenty of snacks and complimentary water and drinks always available. From the welcome on arrival onwards, I felt really at home. Having an extra (third) night would have been well worthwhile."
