The game drives involve both a guide and tracker, this adds to the experience on 2 levels. You have 2 sets of eyes searching out the action, looking for tracks – this ensures a good chance of sightings, especially predators. In addition, having the tracker out front, concentrating on tracking, means that the guide is more able to talk to clients, keep them informed and to answer any questions.
Game walks are also available, and the length of the walk can be adjusted to suit your personal desires, or level of fitness. The walks are comfortable strolls, meant to provide you with a chance to experience the wilderness and open your eyes to a new and fascinating world.
Nxai Pan is a 100% solar-operated camp.
