Rumour in Maun is of a new Camp - FIREFINCH CAMP will be opening on 1st April 2014 at Thamakalane River Lodge in Maun
Their 'blurb' states It will comprise of 8 shower 'en- suite' Meru tents each with twin beds. Firefinch camp is set back from the Thamakalane River - some of the tents having river views and others partial or none.
All facilities offered at Thamalakane are available to guests staying at FireFinch Camp
Low Season Rack rate: USD 160
High Season Rack : USD 180
The rates include shower en suite accommodation for 2 people and INCLUDES breakfast
This new Camp will add to the already substantial accommodation in Maun - but offering a more 'rustic' experience hopefully. It could be useful for International and South African self drivers on their way to The Moremi Game Reserve.
My only concern is that Thamakalane Lodge itself has not been well reviewed on TA - but hopefully the new Camp will be better managed and operated
