This was our first lodge out of three that we stayed in. We wanted to taste the three different environments ie desert, permanent water and flood water. Nxai Pans is in the desert part . The rooms were large, clean and very comfortable. The food was brilliant and the bar always open. A lovely open pit fire to retire to...

Nxai Pan camp is located at an own waterhole where we could observe elephants all day. Rooms are large and comfortable, with a good, large bed, bathroom with double sink and a shower, and a deck with good view of the waterhole. Game viewing was very good. Particularly also at the other waterhole, which was about 30 minutes drive from...

To start 2 weeks of Safari in Botswana, Nxai Pan is great. Best season is for Zebras Migration in rainy seasn. But still, we saw lions and a cheetah. In comparison to other camps in Botswana quite cheaper but absolutely worth ist Money.

Nxai Pan was one of four Kwando camps in our recent Botswana safari. We traveled from one to another via small planes - all arranged through Kwando. Nxai Pan camp is in one of the pans bordering the Kalahari desert. The views from the main lodge and all the rooms were beautiful - looking out over the Kalahari. And the...

Nxai Pan was the first stop on our return trip to Botswana in 2016. We chose it because we hoped to see the herds of zebra and wildebeest and we were not disappointed - there were vast areas of the pans covered in wildlife, and we witnessed the birth of a zebra foal (and the savagery of a stallion which...

Well run camp with excellent staff. Rooms are spacious although some are quite a long walk away from the main building where all activities start from and where all meals are taken. We enjoyed this camp and had great fun with the happy generous staff. The game viewing was quite extraordinary both from the chalets and on the drives. The...
