Experience & Activities

Planet Baobab is a unique and quirky lodge set just off the main road from Maun to Kasane. The lodge is spread out in an area dotted with many Baobab Trees, of which most are more than a thousand years old. The area is close to the northern edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans which are the major attraction.

Activities include game drives in the Ntwetwe Pan to find desert-adapted species, a visit to the habituated meerkats, local village cultural tours, baobab bush walks and quad biking expeditions accompanied by a sleep-out on the pans.


The accommodation on offer includes 18 comfortable thatched huts of which three are family rooms. They are all spread out amongst the Baobabs and contain en-suite bathrooms. Planet Baobab also offers an affordable campsite with shaded camping areas and shared ablutions. The main area contains a large stylish bar with ice cold beverages and an a la carte menu for meals. There is also an amazingly cool and large swimming pool providing a welcome retreat from the warm Kalahari days. While Planet Baobab offers an out-of-this-world and remote escape in Botswana, wifi is now available in the main reception area for guests’ convenience.
