For your journey to Botswana you have chosen the our lodge . The lodge is situated in Pandamatenga, North of Botswana, right at the main street A3 when you travel from Nata to Kasane. The distance from here to Chobe National Park is 100 km, to the Vic Falls 170 km and to the Hwange Park only 42 km.
The name of our lodge was born out of an idea that we want to offer to small group of guests, a special view of Africa, this most beautiful country in the world, combined with a special service.
Your host is a professional hunter and he knows a lot about Africa's nature.
We offer you a familiar, friendly stay at our lodge with an uncomplicated service. Our team will give you all the attention you need and is open for all your questions. You can either book just a normal overnight stay or an adventure safari tour, everything is possible.
The chalets are tastefully decorated and offer comfortable rooms around to relax after a long day of exploring the beautiful nature around the lodge. The chalets are situated left and right of the main lodge and offer a double bed and a single bed, shower, toilet and a small terrace.
At night, after a long day of exploration and adventure, you can take off your shoes, relax and listen to the interesting sounds of the night. Enjoy a relaxing evening in our lounge or at the bar with the view of the water hole.
For our game drives we use specially equipped open vehicles to give you a unrestricted view of the bush and it's animals. To really appreciate our African sunset we'll stop at one of the many pans in our area, observe game coming to drink whilst having our own sundowners and savour the sunset. Afterwards we'll spoil you with a thick juicy homegrown steak grilled on the open fire.
On our return to the lodge we will observe the nocturnal wildlife and listen to the unique sounds and noises of the African night.
Elephants and a huge variety of other game can be seen from very close. The area where we are situated is still pristine and untouched African wilderness which we explore on afternoon game drives that last into the early evening.
An interesting alternative are guided game walks. All you'll need is a good pair of shoes, your binoculars and camera.
