Description

Kwando Nxai Pan

Nxai Pan National Park

Kwando Nxai Pan is strategically located on the Western edge of an ancient fossil pan after which the camp has been named. The camp faces East for perfect sunrises and views over the grasslands of the pans. The most attractive feature of Nxai Pan National Park is the annual Zebra migration of thousands of animals that flock to the area. This is the second largest animal migration in Southern Africa.

Full day excursions are possible to Baines’ Baobabs which are a very popular attraction due to their size and age. The trip includes a picnic lunch close to the baobabs. After more than 150 years these trees’ have changed very little. Baobab trees’ are much sought after by Elephant who eat the bark for their water and potassium content.

Cultural interactions with the local San Bushmen trackers is an incredible insight into how these people have survived in this harsh landscape. The Bushmen used to live nomadic lives and will teach you how to hunt, gather food, find water sources, and which plants are used for medicinal purposes. Their wealth of true bush knowledge is unparalleled and one of the most popular guest activities.

The Camp

Kwando Nxai Pans nine tents, including a family tent, all face the waterhole with the main area being the ideal location for game visiting the water hole. Regular visitors to the water hole include Elephant, Cheetah, and the migratory herds of Zebra which come from late December to early April. The annual migration is dependent on summer rainfall in Botswana which affects their movement.

Constructed and designed with a simplistic and minimalist design it is reflective of the surroundings and the incredible white salt pans. The thatched rooms are specially designed to provide a constant and comfortable temperature throughout the year. Due to the nature of deserts temperatures can fluctuate from below freezing to well over 45 degrees Celsius.

The main areas of the camp include a spacious open plan lounge and dining area with a bar, pool and curio shop.

Kwando Nxai Pan is a 100% solar-operated camp.
