I lived in Botswana as a student, and have been to more safari destination all over Southern Africa than I can recall. However, this is by far the most amazing and breathtaking safari lodge so far! It is just 10/15 km away from The Thlokweng boarder with Botswana, and so if you are visiting Botswana only- I suggest you make the trip here!!!
As I tell all my friends, this is a must destination for a honeymoon, or a girls trip! Where to begin.... you are greeted with "Welcome drinks" in the lobby, when checking in. Everything about the decor reminds you that you are in Africa, and in the wild. Wood carvings, African weaved plates, ostrich eggs, native woods etc etc. The food is amazing, and authentic, incredible views of the water hole from the restaurant, rooftop bar, and from all the chalets. The first day we were there, there were elephants playing in the water just feet away from our private patio and hottub area, and later a herd of wildebeest came for a drink. To sum it up, you are always surrounded by animals and nature. And the safari game drives are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!
