Nxai Pan National Park lies just north of the Maun-Nata road and adjoins Makgadikgadi Pans National Park on its northern border. Nxai Pan was originally state land and an area of 1676 sq. km was declared a game reserve in 1970, and then in 1992 the boundaries were extended to include Baines Baobabs to give the present total area of 2578 sq km and national park status was granted. The Nxai Pans were once part of the great lake that covered central Botswana - which included The Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi and Lake Ngami to name a few. This is the only lodge within the National Park!

Safari Itinerary

Day 1&2 Nxai Pan, Nxai Pan National Park
This morning take a light charter flight from Maun through to Nxai Pan where you are based for 2 nights. Nxai Pan Camp is located on the western edge of a fossil pan from which the camp takes its name, it faces east over the open grasslands of the pans. Nxai Pan National Park is situated in Northern Botswana, 2578sq km Nxai Pan National Park is mainly forest and savanna woodland and large areas of open grassland. Nxai Pan is located north of the Makgadikgadi Pans and it was once part of the old Makgadikgadi lake bed. The Makgadikgadi, lake, an area of 80 water evaporated, huge salt-encrusted pans were left. In Nxai Pan National Park two of these Pans - Nxai (a fossil lake bed about 15km wide and covered with short grass), and Kgama-Kgama Pan are located. On the pans are islands of Acacia trees which the animals used for shade during the day. The is open to visitors throughout the year, although road conditions can become difficult during times of heavy rain. Perhaps the focal point of Nxai Pan is the waterhole, in the midst of a large grassy plain which is dotted with a few clumps of short umbrella thorn trees. Here, and within the mopane woodland, lion, giraffe, kudu, springbok, impala, ostrich, together with a good pupulation of jackal, bat-eared fox and numerous smaller creatures, are permanent residents. Whilst many other parks and reserves are not considered to be at their best during the rains, Nxai pan becomes a veritable Garden of Eden. Once the rains start, game viewing can be good and birdlife is excellent. The noisy black korhaan, who rises with a squeak when flushed out by a vehicle, is a hallmark of Nxai Pan and small raptors such as kestrel and goshawks abound. Keep your binoculars handy as there are many bird species to spot at Nxai Pan National Park.
