Imagine a giant anthill with a Planet Hollywood look-alike sign, a bar with a beer-bottle chandelier, and funkily decorated mud and grass huts in a grove of eight ancient baobab trees. Planet Baobab provides a fun base for younger budget travelers to explore the fascinating Makgadikgadi Pans. Guests can take guided walks with the San through the plants and trees of this fascinating area, or ride 4WD quad bikes over the salt pans during the dry season. Although you can opt to stay in a Bushman grass hut, you'll be better off in one of the traditional Bakalanga mud huts, which have private bathrooms. Meals are available, but you can also buy or bring your own provisions and make use of the shared kitchen. Planet Baobab is accessible by road; it's off the main road to Maun, 15 minutes from Gweta, but most visitors fly in.
