Visit a millennia-old baobab forest, named after the man who discovered and portrayed them in a famous canvas painting, at Baines Baobabs. The distinctive baobab trees here attract many visitors, who come here to enjoy one of the undisputed wilderness highlights of Botswana. Take a trail used by the area's first two European explorers when they journeyed through Africa’s interior. The risky journey, which lasted for two years, is now easily managed with four-wheel-drives instead of ox wagons. When you spot the famous baobabs, take a photo and compare it to the iconic painting--only one branch has broken off in almost 150 years. Our Nxai Pan National Park trip builder tool makes visiting Baines Baobabs and other Nxai Pan National Park attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
