Beautiful lodge on a hill overlooking a water hole where hers of elephants come at sunset. Magic. Excellent service, outstanding food and great guides. A special thank you to Abram and Nanette for being so perfect hosts.

Hi There Thanks so much for your positive review. We're glad you enjoyed the all round safari experience. The breeding herds of elephants are in abundance at the moment. Abram and Nanette are the ideal hosts and they always make you feel like family. Warm Regards The Ghoha Hills Team

Experiencing wildlife in such a beautiful setting - I didn't think it was still possible these days! After the arrival in Kasane, we had a transport to the Lodge, around 4h on paved and dirt roads. The drive itself is an adventure already and if you're lucky, you get to see a lot of animals already. Once you arrive at...

Hi There Thank you so much for your review. The road transfer to the lodge is not your average transfer. It is a mini-game drive and guests see plenty en route to the lodge. A great introduction !

1. Staff - Everyone was as kind, friendly and helpful as they could possibly be. The guest-focused service could not have been better. 2. Food - Coming from a foodie: the meals were amazing! They are also able to customize to dietary restrictions. 3. Location - The hilltop views were astounding! There is not another building in sight and the...

Wow! Where do I even begin? My partner and I were traveling in a group of 13 and Botswana was our second stop on our 2.5 week trip. It was absolutely magical! Completely secluded with no other villages around for a hundred miles, it was truly an authentic, African experience. From the moment we pulled into the camp the staff...

Hi Sarah Thanks for your glowing review of our lodge! We're glad you and your group of travellers enjoyed your stay at our secluded lodge. A huge drawcard for our lodge (apart from the location and game viewing) is the atmosphere. Nanette and Abram are very generous, warm and welcoming hosts. However, their kindness and professionalism does not stop there...

Our family of 5 had an amazing stay. The location on top of the highest hill in the savannah for 100 miles, being wonderfully served with exquisite fresh gourmet food, viewing game at the watering hole, relaxing in the pool and being guided by Vasco to see leopards was beyond belief. I would have loved to spend two restive, restorative...

What a privilege it was to have stayed at wonderful Ghoha Hills. The only downside was that 2 nights was not long enough. Set high on a hill, above the beautiful plains of Savuti, the views are spectacular. A watering hole below the camp, affords the chance to see game as they come to slate their thirst on a daily...

Top quality gracious hospitality. Attention was paid to every detail of the stay from the initial greeting to the accommodations to the food. Views of the sunset/sunrise and waterhole from high on the hill were among the highlights of our trip to Botswana.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched high on the eastern side of the Ghoha Hills, this hilltop retreat boasts unparalleled 180 degree views across the savannah and the natural waterhole which attracts wildlife year round. To the south east of the lodge, the Savuti Marsh beckons with its unique game viewing opportunities. The Marsh is a relic of an inland lake which is fed by the Savuti channel. Covered by extensive savannah and rolling grasslands, the wildlife is dynamic year round. The dry and wet seasons change the scenery and offer sightings of the annual migrations of zebras and predators. Elegance abounds in the eleven well-appointed canvas suites, which have been elevated on wooden decks, ensuring spectacular sunrise views. An exclusive and intimate ambience permeate this understated luxury lodge affording even the most discerning of travellers to Botswana a truly unique safari experience. Ghoha Hills is an eco lodge, using solar power for minimum impact to the environment. The lodge blends into the natural environment whilst maintaining the integrity of the pristine natural bush. ... more   less
