Nata is 2hrs north of Francistown and 3hrs south of both Maun and Kasane. The Lodge itself is located 10km south of Nata village and due to its beautiful setting, good location and friendly atmosphere has become a popular place to stop for tourists wishing to break their journey to Northern Botswana.

What to see and do

Nata Lodge arrange excursions to Makgadikgadi Pans as well as game drives to Nata Sanctuary which is 5km away. Sunset drives to Nata Sanctuary are popular allowing you to experience the vastness of the Pans as well as seeing something of the amazing birdlife that inhabits this harsh landscape.

The bushveld around the Lodge is habitat for a wide variety of birds with numerous finches, parrots, buntings and doves attracted to the 'wild bird feeding area' just next to the restaurant. Specials to look out for include Pied Babbler, Meyer's Parrot and Violet-eared Waxbill to name a few.

Tree squirrels frequent the Lodge whilst at night Bushbabys can be seen around the Lodge and campsite.

There is a swimming pool and a good restaurant (the breakfast is recommended) as well as a well-stocked curio shop.


Accommodation ranges from luxury thatched chalets to A-frame tents which have all been newly built following a devastating bush fire in 2008. There is also a reasonably sized camping area which has some of the best ablutions in any camping site in Botswana!
