Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Planet Baobab is an exuberant oddity in the dramatic expanse of openness called the Makgadikgadi - once a country-sized lake and now an empty wilderness of adventure, beauty and total silence. Quirky décor decisions have followed sound practical ones like an enormous swimming pool, glorious showers, a bright and cheerful bar, a convivial central campfire and a variety of accommodation options to suit every need.

Accommodation options at Planet Baobab include traditional Bakalanga and Bushman huts enhanced with modern comforts - like an en suite bathroom, cotton linen and four-poster mosquito drapes. You can barbecue on your own or enjoy a meal at the restaurant. Activities include bush walks, quad bike trails, migration excursions, cultural interaction, bush dinners and sleep-outs.

People, places and ancient history converge at Planet Baobab, itself an eccentric convergence of modern and traditional styles. The Makgadikgadi Pans are littered with artefacts from the ancient hunter-gatherer people of the central Kalahari; an infusion of Bantu and Tswana add colour to the villages nearby and the whole region is a wonder of spectacular scenery, wildlife and the fragile desert ecosystem of the Kalahari. Set among ancient migration paths, Planet Baobab has formed a modern migration path of its own with visitors between the Kalahari and the Okavango Delta.
