Nxai Pan National Park is a situated in north-eastern Botswana, consisting of Nxai Pan, which is one of the Makgadikgadi Pan salt flats. Nxai Pan National Park lies just north of the Maun-Nata main road and adjoins Makgadikgadi Pans National Park on its northern border. The pan itself is a fossil lake-bed about 40 square km in size. Nxai Pan Camp is located 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. The biggest draw to Nxai Pan National Park are the zebras that migrate by the thousands to the area - the second largest land animal migration in Southern Africa.
Day trips to Baines’ Baobabs are highly popular, and include a picnic lunch at the site. These age-old trees were immortalised in paintings by the artist and adventurer Thomas Baines in 1862. If you were to compare Baines’ paintings to the scene today, you would find that after 150 years, the trees are nearly identical - testament to the age of these magnificent giants.
Nxai Pan is located south east of the Okavango Delta in the Nxai Pan National Park, Botswana. Nxai Pan is a short 40 minute flight from Maun or a 1h05 minute flight from Kasane. Nxai Pan can also be reached via 4x4 vehicle/camper (park fees not included).
