About
Description
Thobolo's Bush Lodge and Campsite is perfectly situated allowing for easy day game drives into Savuti, Linyanti and the top end of the Chobe National Park river frontage. We are located at the largest More natural pan in the entire area - Barangwe Pan. Both the Lodge and the Campsite are totally off the grid. Our solar powered boreholes keep the pans full throughout the year providing us with an abundance of wildlife. Thobolo's (Setswana for Gunn) Bush Lodge is owned by Mike Gunn, who built and operated Gunns Camp in the Delta for 20+ years. Less
