Very peaceful, away from it all place. We had a puncture on our way so arrrived in the dark, but managed to find the campsite. Incredible waking up to the pan and baobabs the next morning. The only other people we saw were a few...More

Well worth the long drive - plenty of game on the way and the baobabs are amazing. The pans in front of me baobabs had plenty of water, attracting birds, orix and zebras, plus elephants.

Definitely worth going to see as you will see lots of different countryside and animals along the way. These trees are truly amazing and must be hundreds of years old.

We only did a short day drive to the salt pans an baobabs, but the scenery is very different from many of the more northern parks and reserves… We did drive to the waterhole as well, but in the middle of the day, so sadly...More

We wondered where on earth we were going...but when we got there it was absolutely stunning. Camp 1 was great, good shower and a good long-drop. Sunsets and sunrises were beautiful. Most outstanding were the stars at night...bright, clear and the whole sky was full...More
