Leroo La Tau ('Footprints of the Lion') is located on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The safari lodge has 12 luxurious thatched chalets set on cliffs above the dry Boteti riverbed and a waterhole, which attracts a variety of game. This region is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including zebra, wildebeest, lion, leopard and cheetah. Crocodiles and hippos can also be seen here.

The guest chalets are set on individual raised wooden platforms and provide comfortable accommodation with ensuite bathrooms. The main lodge area houses the dining room, lounge area and bar where guests can relax and chat over a drink. Alternatively guests can sit around the campfire enjoying views of the river. The lodge also has a pool, perfect for cooling off from the heat of the day. Activities offered include both day and night game drives in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, and there is a good hide at the lodge too. If the water is high enough, boat safaris on the Boteti River are also offered.

Trips onto the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi are not generally included as they are quite far from the lodge, but optional overnight sleepout excursions to the salt pans are offered, as are trips to Khumaga village, Nxai Pan and Baines Baobabs. All these optional trips are possible if you have a 3-night minimum stay.

Generator power is available day and evening.

Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

Brilliant guide (very good on birds) and a wealth of wildlife - all close to the lodge. The river floodplain is a magnet for every kind of creature and the vast numbers of zebra are remarkable. Huts well situated close to the water and with things to see straight outside. Wonderfully friendly staff keen to make our stay memorable.
