2 days camping in Nxai Pan Park

Views: 132 Visited: Jan 2019 Reviewed: Feb 13, 2019

We drove from the Maun Airport to the park, I think about the best part of 4hrs. It was the rainy season and was surprisingly dry for the most part. The camping areas are well shaded, private and clean. We spent the better part of 2 days exploring and photographing. We pretty much had the park to ourselves only for meeting one other tour company.

Not as impressive as the Serengeti plains with the taller grasses. More open, flat terrain a... read more

Quiet

Views: 63 Visited: Jan 2019 Reviewed: Jan 31, 2019

We visited Nxai Pan (pronounced n (click tongue) ai in January, when it is supposedly peak season. The rains had just begun, which meant mainly dry and sunny skies interrupted by 2-3 hours of torrential rains. Although there were a smattering of herbivores around, and a few lions spotted in the distance, it was underwhelming. We did camping here and it was quiet and secluded. We only saw one other vehicle here our entire time.

Wonderful park

Views: 528 Visited: Feb 2015 Reviewed: Apr 02, 2015

We like to add Nxai Pan in the green season when the zebra migration is in place. In this period we have had several fantastic safaris in Nxai Pan, with good sightings of lion and cheetah, and of course thousands of zebras and giraffe. Nxai Pan brings diversity to your safari itinerary and is like no other place. We also love to go to Baines Baobabs for a different experience.
If you do a longer safari in green season we recommend you add Nx... read more

Desert magic

Views: 722 Visited: Feb 2014 Reviewed: Jul 30, 2014

Was so glad we decided to visit this park. The cool salt pans and funky baobabs alone were worth it. We were there during the rainy season, which made all the different, or so I'm told. I saw so many zebra, it was crazy.
For me, it was the scenery that made it worth-while. I'd love to return! read more

Spectacular desert experience & live kill in dry season

Views: 646 Visited: Sep 2011 Reviewed: May 18, 2013

I absolutely loved the Nxai during dry season, although that’s probably because by the time we got there we were well and truly saturated with game viewing. It’s the deserted scenery which is just awe-inspiring. Cold nights, bright starry skies and absolutely desolate bush camps is what I enjoyed the most.

Granted, if you’re after lots of animal viewing best you time with your visit with the rains and the zebra migration, but we’d seen it ... read more
