The Makgadikgadi Pans

Nxai Pan Camp is a luxury safari camp on the western edge of Nxai Pan, a grass-covered fossil lakebed, in Botswana's Makgadikgadi Pans.

Nxai Pan Camp provides eight spacious and elegant thatched chalets offering a mix of African traditions and contemporary comforts. Each one features a delightful deck overlooking the waterhole, the perfect place to sip a cocktail as you watch animals wander by.

Explore the surrounding area with thrilling game drives, interactive bushmen experience and trips to the renowned Baines’ Baobabs and Khama Khama Pan. After a tiring day, cool off in the plunge pool as you enjoy the views.
