Nxai Pan
is a substantial conservation area which covers around 2650 square kilometres on the north side of the main Maun-Nata road in the north of Botswana, opposite the much larger Makgadikgadi National Park.

It is comprised of flat and arid Kalahari bush-veld, but features a three very important networks of salt pans, which sustain wildlife throughout the year, but especially during the Nov/Apr green season when the migratory herds pass through. The area is also renowned for its remote islands of historic baobab trees.

The main potential downsides in this Nxai area are that wildlife sightings can be elusive during the May/Oct dry season, the ecosystem here is slightly artificial and the presence of self-drivers can reduce the sense of wilderness. Being inside a national park means that off-road driving and night-time driving not permitted.
