Amazingly the road to nxai pans this year was not as bad as last year. Very clean abolutions and nice hot water showers. Site 1 abit secluded but visited by elephants and jackal. Still prefer camp site 2. Water hole 4 km away with elephants, kudu, ostrich, wilderbeast, impala, steinbock. Unfortunately this time no lions. Bat eared fox by the roadside as you leave the water hole back to camp.

Cleanest washroom facilities in Africa so far. We just visited campsite since the overnight fees seemed excessive. They wanted camp fees per person and since you stay overnight the park fees are double even if you leave first thing in the morning. Roads are terrible but animals are plenty. The elephants walk through campsite and are everywhere. We had late picnic (3:30) in campsite and the elephants were all around on the campsites. Only one site was taken although on the way out we met two groups coming to camp. We would have stayed if it had been one park admission fee rather than two (one for day of arrival and one for day of exit). Fees seem to gouge foreigners for what you get. Roads not graded or cared for parts of park in rough shape.

Nice camp under purple pod terminalia trees. The ablutions are clean & they have solar powered hot water for showering but only cold water for washing dishes & don’t forget your own plug for the sink. There is a small tuck shop at the South Camp office & FREE WiFi. In 2022 the grass is still high after the heavy rains in 2021. Lots of birds flirting around the camp & a cheeky Jackal may try to steal your supper. The elephants seem to like the grass in the camp.

One of the better campsites inside a NP. Great abblutions (with hand soap). Elephants visit the camp often, but stay away once the fire is lit. We found the road towards the camp a bit disappointing. Very long and sandy track through a ditch, so very hard to see anything in the bush. Once you reach the camp, the views are amazing. Don't forget to visit the Baines baobab's. Definitely worth the detour.

10 nice campsites at the southern edge of Nxai Pan. Site 10 is very private. Ablutions are clean, water is flowing. 40 km sandy dirt road to get here, no problem anywhere. Don´t miss the great pans around Baines Baobabs and the waterhole in the Nxai Pan with many Jackals and Elephants, some Springbok, few blue wildebeest, giraffe and Zebra. For cats you have to be lucky or bring a lot of time.

We stayed 2 nights, not much to do but to stay at the one perennial waterhole and wait for the show (lions, elefants, zebra, etc.). The 40km of badly corrugated and deep sandy tracks make it not worth it for 1 night only. No shade on site 10, the most secluded though.

Campsite 2 is the best campsite close to a neat ablution block. The facility was pristine with lovely hot showers. The resident elephant went through the camp as well as a jackal were around the campsite at night. The birds kept us entertained the next morning. The waterhole about 3 km from the campsite was busy with the following animals: kudu, ostrich, elephant, impala, springbuck, zebra, wildebeest, jackals, fowls. Vultures and many more.

Quite dry but guaranteed to see Elephants from close up. They are very chilled especially when they walk through the camp. Lots of jackals cruising around the camp so hide your food. Hyenas stole our shoes at night so keep them in your car or tent. Saw Cheetah, lots of Kori bustard, bat eared foxes, Gemsbok on the way in. Heard lions calling at night. Lovely place.

We stayed in campsite 2 which was one of the most private. Visited by a jackal both nights, elephant on the second day a hare came through our site.
Nice ablution block but on the morning we were leaving there was no water at all so toilets weren't flushing and we could not shower at 10am - the solar system probably needs updating so the water pump works.

Good Campsite run by Xomae group. Very well kept ablution facilities in perfect order. Also area to do laundry and clean dishes.

All campsites have a braai area but no power. Campsite no 1 is very secluded but doesn't have an amazing view. Also no fences around the campsites so wild animals are very present (had a lion roaring in the vicinity for both our nights here).

Paid US$25 per person which is standard Botswana camping rates for National Parks.

The conservation fees of P120 person pwr day and P50 per vehicle per day for a vehicle were charged for 3 days (as we stayed for 2 nights) but less than 48 hours.

We stayed here for 2 nights and met only one other camping couple. Prices are still the same, ablutions very nice and clean.
Great area for game driving (elephants, zebras, wildebeest, kori Bastard, lions!, jackals...) although paths can be very muddy especially after rain (and we have had daily rain showers). We had a jackal by the camp at night and big herds of zebras close by.
Surprisingly, street to the office stays very muddy and full of paddles. Be prepared during rainy season.

We stayed here for two nights. Hard to find shade on spot 10, therefore we moved to no. 6 for the second night. Surprisingly very good and very clean ablutions and showers - and very spacy, too. High chance of lions and elephants at night they told us - unfortunately not while we were there.

stayed one night. we preferred the area of campground 8,9,10. Seemed to be more private. we stayed on 10 which was great because right and left of the campsite are elephant paths behind the trees. They like to head to the ablutions to drink the dump water. Minus: not much shade which was ok because we just stayed one night.
25 $ for SA
38 $ other nationalities
warm showers

Stayed her one night to make some gamedrives in the park! We were two cars and had more than enough space, very clean and nic ablution. Not cheap but worth the money for us! Lots off chade on spots 2, 3 & 4! Not to much wildlife but raining season is very late this year!

US$38 pppn + park fees. As for all national Parks, camping is expensive! But unlike many, the facilities here are surprisingly good. Excellent ablutions, spotlessly clean with borehole water and hot showers. Braai stand and fire pits at each pitch. Plenty of shade, and a resident elephant when we were there! Black-backed jackals also visited at night.
We did not book, just asked at the park gate and they directed us to the Xomae office next to the campsite (where we paid using credit card!).
Well stocked shop with cold drinks available, and a permanent (pumped) waterhole nearby provided endless elephant watching!

We stocked in the sand short before our campground. Another camper and a truck were stocked as well. 6 local men helped us coming out. But if you go to the waterhole you forget this little stress part. Many elephants were there and in the evening six lions came too. Wow! Amazing and unforgettable!
The abolution is clean with flush toilets and showers.
We stayed on No. 1 which is more lonely than the others.

After driving the very sandy road for an hour we were faced with dry pans and no animals. Disappointed we left the park after seen one giraffe and an ostrich.

Pans are stunning, roads to pans are very sandy, corrugated, bumpy but worth the effort.
