Activities: Boating safaris, game drives and island walks can also be arranged weather and safety permitting. Mokoro trips can be taken either half or full day and bush picnics arranged. Motor boat trips, particularly at sundown, are very enjoyable.

Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews
Apparently this year has been a slow one for the lodge - there were only four of us there the first night and 6 the following evening - but this enabled you to get to know your fellow travellers better. Again located with good view across river and beyond. The service was very good and it was nice to have the guide join us at mealtimes.
