Planet Baobab Attractions
Along the cracked and crop-less landscape on the road between Maun and Francistown, where elephants tear up any tree that dares to raise its head, a large grey hulk looms into sight at the edge of the road. Follow the side road pointed out by that anteater snout and you will discover the intriguingly named “Planet Baobab”. The average age of each tree; 4000 years - and beyond, the boundless salt pans of the Makgadikgadi, a lunar landscape the size of Switzerland.

Planet Baobab Facilities
At Planet Baobab, you can sleep in traditionally styled Bakalanga huts with en suite showers, or curl up in a Bushmen hut complete in every detail. You can or gather round the communal blaze in the lelwapa and enjoy a cool drink, and enjoy PB's unique Pan-African cuisine.

Planet Baobab Additional Information
Base yourself here and you can take guided walks and quad bike trips into the bush and the Pans with our expert Guides discovering the geological origins of what was once the world's largest ever super lake. Follow the palm trail created by elephant droppings as these ancient creatures trekked across the arid waste when the super lake dried up. Pick up, (and replace!), thousand year old flint spear heads left by the Stone Age hunters who were the region’s first inhabitants.
