    Default Nxai Pan: road conditions around South Camp?

    We are planning to visit South Camp, Nxai in the last week of April 2018. Anyone been recently to that area? Would like to know updated road conditions. We have been advised by Xomaesites that Baines Camp is closed due to flood water.
    Thanks

    We were there end Dec. Road dry but very deep sand in places. When you enter the gate turn left after a few hundred meters and then right again, this road runs parallel to the other one but is better. It re-joins the other road a few km before South Camp. Try get there early while the sand is still cold. We were also at Baines, nearly did not get out due to rain. Enjoy

    Was there on 29/30 March - our booking was at Baines but with rain they changed our booking to South Camp. The South camp campsite was flooded with overnight rain on the 30th, about 30cms deep. We fortunately left that morning, with a bit of wet gear Roads were ok though. I would check with Xomae, did not look like a quick drying site!
