Planet Baobab

Planet Baobab

At Planet Baobab, sleeping will be a pleasure thanks to the traditional but luxurious Bakalanga huts with en-suite showers. Alternatively, you could spend some time in a fully equipped Bushman hut, or settle down in your own tent. 

Choose between a communal fire in the lelwapa or a personal camp fire, and unwind with a refreshing beverage. For your meal, you can either braai some boerewors or sit back and relax with scrumptious Pan-African cooking.

The panorama leading to Planet Baobab on the road connecting Maun and Francistown is arid and crop-less. It is a  place where elephants demolish all trees they may come across. One statuesque grey tree, however, manages to make an appearance.

This is the Baobab capital of the world and origin of the Kalahari Surf Club. Each of these magnificent trees is about 4000 years of age.

Highlights & Activities

Some exhilarating pastimes you can enjoy are guided walks and quad bike trips in the bush and the Pans. The highly knowledgeable guides will lead you in exploring the geological origins of the now non-existent largest super lake.

The friendly Batswana people in the cattle posts and villages surrounding Planet Baobab are more than happy to teach you the African handshake. You can also learn some very interesting facts about Botswana, such as how it is slowly becoming one of the most fruitful and enthralling societies in Southern Africa.
