A&K Top Tip

To stay at Nxai Pan once the rains have started is extraordinarily as large herds of giraffe can be seen with up to 30 in a group on a game drive.

Guest Testimonial

Once again we have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with A&K. There was a fascinating mix of location and camp styles and the particular sequence worked very well for us.

- KB, Surrey



Kwando Nxai Pan is located on the western edge of the fossil pan from which the camp takes its name. Nine purpose built desert rooms specially designed to provide a constant and comfortable temperature throughout the year. Excellent game viewing is possible from the comfort of the rooms as the water hole in front of the camp draws a multitude of wildlife.

Activities offered at Nxai Pan are game drives, day trips to the famous Baines' Baobabs and Khama Khama Pan, star gazing, as well as nature walks with Bushman trackers. As Nxai Pan is in a national park and an ecological sensitive area the vehicles cannot drive off road or at night. The main area of Nxai Pan has a large open plan lounge area and dining room with a viewing deck leading onto the swimming pool. There is also a small library and curio shop. All the guest rooms are connected by a slightly raised walkway to the main area.

Children welcome over 6 years old (under 6 are welcome if camp is booked exclusively). A private vehicle must be booked with children aged 6-12.
