We showed up without a reservation and the very nice and helpful staff were able to get us a family hut as well as get us in on a half day excursion the next day (that was already fully booked but somehow they were able to figure it out). The hut was cute and cozy. Half board is included and food was good. Meerkat and pan excursion was excellent - we also saw elephants, zebras and jackals. Kids loved the pool. Baobabs around the lodge are very impressive. Super nice staff all around. Great place to stop if driving between maun and nata.

Amazing experience. Rooms are so authentic and well made up. Staff are absolutely lovely and they do this amazing deal where you pay your room and get a free bar tab! What’s not to like!

We stayed both at a campsite and in the hut. The campsite is quite horrible as the spots are very close to each other and you can hear all the noise at night. The hut was nice and kept cool even in the middle of a very hot day - good for resting! A huge bonus is that this place is the only budget option to visit habituated meerkats. The drive is one hour long and then you can have fun watching these incredible animals. Planet baobab has a quite large fenced property where you can enjoy baobabs and abundant birdlife. It's so good to walk instead of driving which is the only mode of movement in many other places in Botswana.

Stayed here just before Christmas. The staff were so warm and friendly. My father was in a wheelchair and eventhough they are not wheelchairs friendly it is possible to push a chair around the grounds and between room and dining area. Nothing was too much for them. I loved the unique atmosphere and layout. Food was good and plentiful. Nice bar. I did not go on any long excursions but did the nature walk which is nothing special and you could skip this. You actually dont see that much. Guide however was knowledgeable. Love the large pool. Please dont hesitate to stay here. It seems they treat everyone the same, campers or paying lodge guests which is lovely. The sign from the road says everyone welcome and that rings true.

We booked the quad tour because we thought that it’s gonna be an exciting and fun experience on the pans. We got dearly disappointed as they told us the rules: “no fast driving, no skidding, no overtaking and two persons per quad”. It got worse: the guide told us (the other participants were actual retirees) that for the first stretch we would go with the tourist-bus to explore the vegetation. For the 40km, it would take us 2 hours. Then go see Meerkats and in the end drive 15km onto the pans with the quads. Sounds to me like zero fun. After hearing the briefing, we decided not to go.

Very very nice place to end our little journey.
We opted for a rondavel because we needed to empty the bushcamper of all our belongings and repack.
Impeccable room, great swimming pool, restaurant of the same level.
Smiling, attentive staff.
I recommend ++++
