When to visit ...

It is important to note that this area has converse seasons to the main safari areas of the Okavango Delta and Linyanti Waterfront, largely because it does not contain any permanent rivers or waterholes, but relies completely on a network of seasonal rain-filled pans.

Nov/Apr ... is the summer green season, the classic period in which to visit, when the pans fill and the land produces luxuriant new grass. At this time wildlife converges into the core areas in large numbers.

May/Oct ... is a fascinating but less obvious time to visit. This is the dry season, when the grass dies back and the pans dry out, causing the wildlife to disperse across a vast hinterland in a bitter struggle for survival.

How we like to include Nxai Pan Camp in trips ...

For us the main issue is which of the three main desert areas to include in a safari. Makgadikgadi has the salt pans and habituated meerkats and the vast Central Kalahari has a very special and remote atmosphere. By comparison Nxai often gets overlooked, but the game- viewing here can be spectacular, especially during the shoulder seasons May/Jun and Oct/Nov.

We usually recommend a stay duration of three nights, although two is possible and longer is always nice.

Nxai Pan Camp is usually best visited in combination with at least one other camp in northern Botswana, preferably two or three others, predominantly in the Okavango Delta, making a total stay in the region of 6 to 12 nights.
