We arrived in hot Kasane airport and was met by Philamon who had the AC car running while waiting for us. It took around an hour to get to the lodge as Philamon was so patient and willing to stop for us to watch elephants cross the road. We saw so many animals on arrival. This set the tone for...

This lodge is set above a river delta with a beautiful view of it across to the country of Namibia. Watering holes are placed below the lodge, as well, so animal viewing is 24/7 from everywhere in the lodge area. Each individual cabin or room has its own outdoor shower, small pool and deck overlooking the delta. The rooms are...

This Lodge has been one of the most attractive we have had during our travel in Botswana. The staff is extremely nice, very well educated, friendly and helpful. The rooms are placed in a gorgeous landscape with a breathtaking view surrounded by wilderness. We stayed there for 3 nights and we enjoyed every minute. Food was also excellent.

Get five star pampering in the African outback. The five-star accommodations are complemented with amazing food. How they do this in the middle of nowhere I don't know! The place is amazing and the management is wonderful. Our only downside is the long jeep ride on both highway and park roads to get to the wildlife viewing along the river....

Many thanks for your wonderful review! We are so pleased you had a great stay with us. Unfortunately the downside of being situated in a more peaceful location is the journey to the busier side! We are so glad you had great sightings so that it was worth the trip! Best regards, Jonathan Hudson. General Manager.

Stayed here for three nights. Absolutely gorgeous. Food was excellent and our guide MK on our game drives was great. Did a river safari in addition to the game drives and even had a picnic in the bush. Saw leopard, plenty of elephant, zebra and on one afternoon, more than 100 giraffes. Staff was very attentive and food was exquisite....
