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!
