Formed out of a prehistoric lake bed, the Nxai Pans is a land of contrast. Flat salt pans stretch as far as the eye can see, with fringes of waist-high grass and thorny acacia trees. It’s home to vast baobab trees, millions of birds, as well as herds of migrating zebra, and the predators that accompany them.
Part of the Makgadikgadi Pans, Nxai Pans is a conservancy where animals have free range between Nxai and the Makgadikgadi Game Reserve. One of the most remote destinations in the world, this is a land without modern amenities. Cut off from the internet, phone calls, and without WiFi, this is a camping expedition in true pioneer style.
Our adventurous Group Head of Digital, Julien Perreard, recently joined Migration Expeditions to experience it for himself.
