A new eco-camp opened in 2009.
Overlooking a permanent waterhole at the edge of Nxai Pan, the camp is situated in the south western section of Nxai Pan National Park; the Nxai Pans were once part of the great lake that covered central Botswana. Today, the Pan is a fossilised lakebed, some 40 square kilometres in size. The landscape is largely grassland, dotted with clusters of umbrella acacia trees and mopane woodland in the north.
Accommodation & Facilities
The eight thatched rooms consist of seven en-suite twin rooms and one family suite, sleeping four guests. Each solar powered unit includes a fan, outside shower and private viewing deck.
Connected to the rooms by raised walkways, the main area includes a dining room, lounge area and viewing deck. Other facilities at Nxai Pan include a refreshing swimming pool, well-stocked library and curio shop.
Day-time game drives operate open 4x4 vehicles. Historical tours, nature walks and star gazing are also offered.
Nxai Pan is in a national park and an ecological sensitive area – for this reason there is no off-road driving or night driving.
Children over 12 years are treated as adults, 6 -12 year olds are welcome but private vehicles must be booked, and children under 6 are welcome if exclusive use of the camp is booked.
