Nxai Pan Camp Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
In 1992 the area was declared a national park and Nxai Pan was enlarged to an area of 2 578 square kilometres. Nxai pan is renowned for beautiful scenery that is unique to the area as well as huge springbok population and once the rains have started, gemsbok, elephant and zebras migrate to the region. At the same time zebra’s come in their thousands to give birth to their young. Massive herds of giraffe can be seen with up to 30 in a group. These large herds of zebras, springbok, and wildebeest attract many predators like lion, cheetah, jackal and both spotted and the elusive brown hyena, as well as the endangered wild dog and the secretive leopard. There are large numbers of bat-eared fox and raptors that prey on the rodents and reptiles. At times, Rhino’s have also been sighted. Also to be seen are the eland, greater kudu and red hartebeest. The birdlife is incredible, once the rains have started.
