We need to get up early, as today is our longest drive of the safari as we leave Namibia and enter Botswana. After settling into our accommodation, we take a stroll with our guide through the surrounding baobab forest, while he explains the local ecology, geology and, of course, the unique biology of the baobabs which are in fact, not trees but, the largest succulent in the world.

Covered in nutritious short grasses and small islands of acacia trees, Nxai Pan attracts vast numbers of desert herbivores such as gemsbuck, springbuck, and giraffe.
