Camped 1 night here. Basic camping...drop toilet and you bring everything else. Spectacular scenery and a full moon added to the ambiance. Very good sunset onto the Baobabs . Well worth the drive into here on the very sandy tracks. Saw a few animals and...More

The park is quite small so you can roam most of it in one full day ( but it is worth staying longer ). Landscapes consist of bush near southgate, plains near Nxai Pan and Kgama Kgama Pan and wetlands around Kudiakam Pan ( which...More

The area is just beautiful, with all these baobab trees on the edge of the salt pans. The camping sites are completely isolated and under beautiful big baobab trees. There is no facilities at all, just nature to accompany you. The roads are quit bad...More

Baines Baobabs are approximately 20 km's from the Reserve gate on the Gweta/Maun road. The trees are just on the edge of a really large salt pan. We visited just for the day, and enjoyed a picnic lunch. One can camp at the baobabs -...More

A fairly long drive along unmade roads from the Nxai Pan National Park Lodge the Baines Baobabs location is reminiscent of the featureless pans of Namibia. For naturalists and historians this is an amazing trip into a remote and hence totally peaceful and tranquil area....More

An interesting visit to this area right next to the salt pans. Shame that some idiots have to scratch their names into the bark of the trees.

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the stunning scenery and eerie landscape of the pans. The pitch we had was large and totally removed from any other so we had complete privacy. Being in the pan itself, we felt safe from wildlife....More

Very peaceful, away from it all place. We had a puncture on our way so arrrived in the dark, but managed to find the campsite. Incredible waking up to the pan and baobabs the next morning. The only other people we saw were a few...More

Bit of a detour off the main road, but worth spending a night camping here in one of the three nearby sites if you can. Some of the biggest trees you'll ever see, something you won't find many places. Camping right in the pan under...More

After a rough 4x4 drive over the savannah you'll get to the first set of baobabs from where you can drive over to one of the three private camp sites (a few KMs apart). You'll be driving over the crusty salt pan where erosion of...More

Baines Baobabs is a remote dry pan with unique and untouched nature. There are no campsites in the vicinity - there is no water supply, drainage facilities or services. In my opinion it is not a place to stay for more that a... More
