Nxai Pan National Park, encompasses 2,100 square kilometers and is made up of numerous bigger pans, including the former salt lakes Nxai Pan, Kgama-Kgama Pan, and Kudiakam Pan. These bigger pans are now grassed, with acacia tree islands dotted here and there. During the rainy season, the smaller pans fill with water and are visited by a variety of species. The Nxai Pan is a sizable grass plain that is, once more, a portion of the former lake bed and is more heavily forested with acacia trees. Baines’ Baobabs, a group of huge baobab trees south of Nxai Pan, were immortalized in 1862 by Livingstone’s expedition member and painter Thomas Baines. The interesting landscapes, a clump of seven giant baobab trees known as the Baines Baobabs and a waterhole frequented by a pride of lions are the main highlights of the Nxai Pans National Park.
Today you will be picked up from your accommodation and driven to Nxai National Park. Springbok, impala, gemsbok, hartebeest, giraffe, lion, and sometimes elephant can be seen on a game drive. We’ll pass past the Baines baobabs. The Baines Baobab trees were named after Thomas Baines (a member of the Livingstone Expedition). He depicted a collection of Baobab trees that came to be known as the “Baines Baobabs” in his paintings. To maintain survival in the harsh, dry circumstances that frequently strike Botswana, the Baobabs store up to 120 000 gallons of water inside the bulging-appearing trunks. Safaris in this region make the most of the natural surroundings, and you shouldn’t miss the magnificent Baines Baobab trees on your Botswana safari.
