Planet Baobab is a friendly lodge set amongst Baobab trees some just south of the main Nata-Maun road and north of the Makgadikgadi Pans. A great location and lower cost options for visiting the salt pans

Planet Baobab is a lower cost lodge option for customers who would like to experience a few days in and around the salts pans but don't have the budget for the luxury camp options.

Set amongst Baobab trees, with an average age for each tree of 4000 years and beyond, Planet Baobab has been a well known watering hole for overland travellers and locals for years and now offers comfortable overnight accommodation.
 
The lodge is made up of eight traditionally styled Bakalanga huts made of brick clad walls and thatched roofs. All of the huts have been colourfully painted with local designs, are relaxed and spacious with double or twin beds and an ensuite bathroom.

The main area of the lodge is a very funky dining and bar area, dominated by a large curved bar lit by two chandeliers made from local beer bottles. The walls are covered with a fine collection of local images and posters which add colour and character. The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly and the whole atmosphere is very personal and appealing.

Activities from Planet Baobab include guided walks, overnight fly-camping and quad bike trips into the bush and the Pans with expert Guides discovering the geological origins of what was once the world's largest ever super lake.

Whilst on the pans you can follow the palm trail created by elephant droppings as these ancient creatures trekked across the arid waste when the super lake dried up. You can also pick up, (and replace!), thousand year old flint spear heads left by the Stone Age hunters who were the region’s first inhabitants.

Experience the world of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency: Learn the African handshake from the Batswana in the cattle posts and villages nearby and enjoy a cuppa of Mma Ramotse’s famous red bush tea with the grande dames of Gweta.

A really cool lower cost lodge option offering a unique experience which otherwise might be too expensive.
