Nxai Pan National Park

Nxai Pan National Park is located on the Northern fringe of the Makgadikgadi basin and includes Nxai Pan, an ancient lake bed that was once part of ancient Lake Makgadikgadi. 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 travellers venturing into this untamed terrain of Botswana.
