Day 4 and 5 - Planet Baobab
Along the cracked and crop-less landscape on the road between Maun and Francistown, where elephants tear up any tree that dares to raise its head, a large grey hulk looms into sight at the edge of the road. If this is an elephant it is a very peculiar one! As the eyes recognise a giant anteater, the brain begins to wonder what might have been in that last beer? Follow the side road pointed out by that anteater snout and you will discover the intriguingly named “Planet Baobab”. The Baobab capital of the world: where the average age of each tree is 4000 years and beyond and the boundless lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi salt pans is the size of Switzerland! Planet Baobab is home to the largest and coolest pool in the Kalahari and the funkiest bar and restaurant serving interesting and delicious dishes from all across Africa and we are “vegetarian-friendly”! A well known watering hole for travellers of every description and the more colourful characters from Maun.Read more...
