Well situated 7km north of Maun, along the Thamalakane River, making it the perfect
stop-over on the way to the northern Game Reserves of Botswana. This lodge has all
of the benefits of being near a town (local amenities, cellphone reception, electricity,
internet access!) whilst also offering the tranquillity and relaxation that comes
from being 'in the bush'.
What to see and do
Whether you are in your chalet or lounging by the swimming pool, you have unspoilt
views of the Thamalakane River which, when in flood, attracts a good number of waterbirds
such as Greyheaded Gull, African Darter and White Pelican along with a variety of
Ducks and Herons as well as the unmistakeable African Fish Eagle. The Riverine woodland
along the river is home to, among others, African Green Pigeon, Golden Weaver and
Hartlaub's Babbler as well as Barn Owl, Pearlspotted Owlet and African Scops-Owl
which can be heard calling at night.
Hippos frequently come out of the river to graze
in front of the Chalets so care should be taken walking back to your chalet at night!
During the day you will be serenaded by the resident Tree Squirrels - keep an eye
out for them in the restaurant!
