Migration Expeditions Camp is a new tented camp in Nxai Pan National Park shining a spotlight on the dazzling Zebra migration which occurs here around Dec-March every year. This is a simple and authentic seasonable camp, operating between November and March, when a little known but staggering natural phenomenon occurs here - the longest migration in Africa. It brings not only Zebra but other antelope and the opportunistic predators that instinctively follow on their trail.
Travelling approximately 1000 km every year, these vast numbers of plains zebras move from Chobe and the Linyanti/Kwando river systems towards the Nxai Pan area at relatively the same time as the arrival of the rainfall in Nxai Pan around the end of November. The longest migration in Africa, the animals are instinctively draw to these greener grassy areas where they give birth to their young in optimal environmental conditions. By early March the herds are beginning to head back towards the Northern region of the Chobe National Park. The exact timings are of course entirely dependent on the arrival of the rains.
The Meru-style tents of Migrations Expeditions Camp are uniquely designed to minimize human impact to the environment and include en-suite bathroom facilities with bucket showers. Earthy tones blend in with the natural surroundings.
The lounge and dining area are created by two large main area tents which also house an open kitchen area. Photographers will appreciate the solar-powered charging points available in the camp. The lounge area extends to form a warm, welcoming fire pit beckoning guests to share their bushveld stories at the end of an adventure-filled day.
Birding enthusiasts will appreciate the countless migratory bird species occurring here and day visits to Baines’ Baobabs -a cluster of magnificent established Baobab trees at the edge of Kudiakam Dam add a historical element to your journey as you learn about the fascinating story behind them. Discovered during the search for Victoria Falls, the shade of these majestic trees provides an ideal setting for a delicious packed picnic lunch.
Daily game drives invite guests to enjoy sightings of impressive elephant bulls, the iconic Kalahari lion, cheetah, springbok, jackals and spotted hyena and oryx amongst others.
