The Nxai Pans were once part of the great lake that covered central Botswana which included The Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi and Lake Ngami to name a few. Livingstone passed this way during the middle 19th century and soon traders and explorers followed and it became an important trade route. In 1861 - the famous painter Thomas Baines arrived to paint an unusual group of baobab trees, one of which lies on its side and hence these beautiful group of tree's became known as 'Baines Baobabs'.
