See Botswana's Baobabs
Stop at the waterhole at Elephant Sands Lodge for lunch (elephantsands.com, tel +267 734 45162), on your way south towards the pans, and hold thumbs for a close-up elephant sighting. Make time for a three-hour return trip to Chapman’s and Green’s Baobabs about 11km from Gweta Village they are remote, and a 4×4 is required. You’ll also need a Tracks4Africa navigation system or an exceptionally detailed map. It’s unlikely you’ll find other vehicles in that vast tract of wilderness.
If you have time, include an overnight camping stay at Kubu Island(we couldn’t fit it into our trip, but it could be your first stop on the mowana meander from the south).
South Africans don’t need a visa to visit Botswana, but if you’re entering by car you’ll need to pay taxes and border fees in pula at the border. Have at least P200 a vehicle. Leave dairy and meat at home because food regulations restrict imported supplies and vehicle checks are made. Pack water, firewood, loo paper and anything else you’ll need for camping at Baines’ Baobabs. There’s a pit loo and a fire slab, but that’s about it. Watch out for animals crossing the A33.
