Wild and original - Botswana awaits you.

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 best time to visit Botswana

In general, the whole of Botswana follows a fairly similar weather pattern with November, December, January and February situated slap bang in the heat and rain of mid-summer. However, there’s plenty of greenery as well as the chance to see newborn animals alongside an abundance of migratory birds. March is also a wet month although rainstorms tend to be confined to afternoon showers, especially when you enter into the month of April. May signals the start of the dry season, with clear skies and moderate temperatures. June, July and August are some of the best months to visit the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park as the wildlife is out in abundance. But be prepared for surprisingly chilly temperatures, especially for early morning game drives.

Accommodation

Chalets overlooking Native Bush

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.

Game Drive Safari - Explore the surroundings of the lodge

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.

  • Observing wildlive from close.
  • Pristine African wilderness.
  • Open game viewing vehicles for unresticted view.

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.

Game Walking Safari

An interesting alternative are guided game walks. All you'll need is a good pair of shoes, your binoculars and camera.
