"Nxai Pan Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 1 Dec 2010
"Wow, what rooms and views!

This was our kind of place, you really had to earn your game viewing. Superb guides and wonderfully peaceful and friendly.

Again, we were the only people, a great bonus." See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana; 6n in Zimbabwe

"Nxai Pan Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 13 Mar 2010
"Would definitely recommend Nxai Pan but the ability to get close to animals is restricted by no off road activities. Apparently the authorities are considering putting more roads to cross the pan and this would help a lot.

Good for searching, listening and using binoculars. Loads of Zebra, Springbok, giraffe. Nxai Pan Lodge excellent especially the staff. It was a good time of year to go and a place to end our safari.

We managed to see a Caracal and bat eared foxes as well as cheetah and lions. It was good for seeing birds." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana

"The camp was very new and was still experencing some minor set up problems but that did not impact on out enjoyment everyone at teh camp was very helpful and pleasent to us
