The Nxai Pan National Park is situated on the migration route of large animal herds moving between the Okavango Delta, the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, and the grasslands in and around the Magkgadikgadi Pan National Park. Lions, giraffes, kudus, jackals, springboks, impalas, and bat-eared foxes can always be found in the park. During the rainy season, from December to April, oryx antelopes, elephants, and thousands of zebras enter the park. Ostriches and numerous bird species add to the game-viewing experience.
Nxai Pan National Park is a national park in northeastern Botswana, consisting of Nxai Pan, one of the Makgadikgadi Pan salt flats. Nxai Pan National Park lies north of the Maun-Nata main road and adjoins Makgadikgadi Pan National Park on its northern border. The pan itself is a fossil lakebed about 40 square km in size. The National Park is also home to the cluster of millennia-old baobab trees, which owe their name to Thomas Baines, the man known to have discovered them. Baines’ Baobabs, as they are known today, are a sight sought by many travelers venturing into this untamed terrain of Botswana.
