Baines Baobabs

Botswana - Okavango & Chobe

Thirty kilometres from the entrance of the Nxai Pan National Park, Baines’ Baobabs are a must-see highlight for any visitor travelling to this area of Botswana.

Seven huge, gnarled baobab trees, named after the 19th-century explorer Thomas Baines, artist, naturalist and cartographer, are s sited on a promontory overlooking and surrounded by the white, crusty Kudiakam Pan.

Baines’ diaries, sketches, drawings and paintings provide us with fascinating first-hand documentation decisive in the history of Southern Africa.
