3-day Botswana Desert Explorer (Budget)

vanvanFollow the road pointed out by the giant anteater and you’ll discover the intriguingly named Planet Baobab.Β  This is the Baobab Capital of the World, where the average age of each tree is more than 4,000 years, and the boundless lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans are the size of Switzerland. How’s that for awe-inspiring?

This is a quirky place in a quirky part of the world, where we live cheek to tusk with old elephants; sleep in Afro-chic Bakalanga Huts; swim in the largest, coolest pool in the Kalahari; eat the finest pan-African cuisine, and of course, drink something cold with hunters and vagabonds, travellers and locals in the funkiest bar in Africa. It’s the coolest desert oasis around – and a part of Africa that few will experience, but all will remember.
