Your destination today is Planet Baobab; this unique and funky camp is situated just off the main Maun to Nata road and borders the extensive Makgadikgadi Pans system. The pans are the remnants of the once great Lake Makgadikgadi, at some 80,000sq kms, in extent, and up to 30m deep, thousands of years ago, this was the largest inland sea in Africa. In the wet season (November to March), this vast area of salt pans interspersed with low-lying grass islands is the destination of herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra, which are followed by predators.

Day 4-6 Chobe Safari Lodge, Kasane
Return to Planet Baobab for breakfast before continuing through to Kasane, where you will be based for the next 3nights. The lodge is situated on the river and adjacent to the park, here you can enjoy optional activities such as a boat cruise or game drive into the park to search for wildlife such as hippo, crocodiles and huge elephant herds, Chobe has one of the largest amounts of elephant to any park in Southern Africa and if you are lucky then you can see them bathing and crossing the river.
