Planet Baobab is just off the main Nata/ Maun Road. The pans are the remnants of the once great Lake Makgadikgadi, the largest inland sea in Africa. In the wet season (November to March), this vast area is the destination of herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra, along with numerous species of migratory birds. Planet Baobab is the self-styled Baobab capital of the world - the average age of each tree is 4 000 years.The camp is popular for self-drives but also well worth a visit for ‘fly-in’ guests. Accommodation is in he Bakalanga Huts (en-suite) each built and designed by local craftsmen, with attractive exterior artwork using natural pigments harvested from termite mounds!
For guests staying in the Grass Huts, or making use of the camp site, ablutions are shared, with the central blocks interestingly designed and built, using truly inspiring local art.
The hub at Planet Baobab is the shebeen bar, complete with its huge beer bottle chandelier suspended from the thatched roof, cow skin chairs and Mopane walls covered in an amazing collection of photographs. Meals are taken in the adjacent dining area under the spreading branches of a morula tree.
