Nxai Pan National Park lies just north of the Maun-Nata main road and adjoins the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park on its northern border. The pan itself is another fossil lakebed about 15 sq. miles (40sq. km) in size. The landscape is dotted with clusters of umbrella acacia trees and mopane woodland in the north. During the rains from November to April, the pans become covered in grass - a landscape typical of the Kalahari.
Arusha National Park is considered to be a little gem in Tanzania's 'Northern Safari Circuit', just 40 minutes drive from the safari gateway town of Arusha. Many visitors head straight for other nearby safari destinations including Mt Kilimanjaro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, without leaving time to visit this scenic park.
