Country

Botswana

Description


A unique rather “funky” destination just east of Gweta, among beautiful baobab trees. Accommodation consists of simple yet fun “mud” huts (traditional Tswana design). There is a sizeable bar which can get quite busy with campers, a fantastic swimming pool and a boma and open dining room. Breakfast and dinner are available. Arrange this on arrival so the kitchen knows how many to cater for. Everything is basic but practical and the decorating is original. Planet Baobab was set up by the  world famous organisation Uncharted Africa, which amongst other things owns Jack’s Camp in the Makgadikgadi Pans.  From the Planet  you can also experience the serenity and wide open spaces of the nearby Makgadikgadi Pans (by day and/or night). Planet Baobab arranges excursions first by 4x4 and then the last part by quad bike into the salt pans, either as a day trip or to include a night out under the stars. If you want to be sure of being able to do the excursion,  it is best to book beforehand (via us) as there are limited numbers of guides, vehicles and quad bikes.
