The Mowana Safari Lodge near the Chobe Game Reserve was built around a majestic 800-year old baobab tree. Legends about these gnarled old trees abound, one being that God uprooted the tree and flung it to the ground upside down, because it kept walking when He first planted it into Chobe soil. The Lodge boasts one of a kind: a hairdressing salon in a treehouse! The swimming pool is also not your regular Olympic-size job, but built in such a way to disappear into the surrounding landscape.
