Nata Lodge campsite is a little treasure in the bush with great private stands. We had a great dinner at the restaurant. Very friendly staff from reception to the security guard who came to introduce himself. We even had some of the local dogs sleeping around our camp fire during the night and greeted us in the morning with wagging...

Beautiful lodge. Four of us stayed in a family room. The room had an indoor bath and outdoor shower. The beds had crisp linen and the room was spotless. They had free wifi and a lovely restaurant and bar. Also had a great pool but as it was winter it was too cold. The only drawback was that it doesn't...

Beautiful lodge, in the middle of nowhere it felt. Accommodation in luxury wooden cabins complete with outside shower. It was pretty cold overnight while we were there and I thought the early morning shower might be a bit of an ordeal but actually was great. Main area with bar, pool and dining area are a beautiful, sheltered, green oasis. Cabins...

An amazing cabin situated in bush, big double bed; a stand alone bathtub and an outdoor shower, where you can shower under the stars. Modern luxury open plan cabin accommodation. Each cabin is reached by sandy paths through the bush. The restaurant, reception, shop, pool and well stocked bar are located in one central area around an open outdoor seating...

Lovely place to stay on our holiday in Botswana. We stayed in the safari tents. They were good. Cocktails reasonably priced. Wifi only available in the eating area. We did not eat in at the lodge due to a big bus tour there staying at the lodge. I would recommend this place as a stop over.

Went there for the third time, great experience again. Nice huts, always spotöess clean great food and super-friendly staff with a great service attitude. This time we came by plane and the manager organized adhoc a security guard for the plane for the night. The tours into the pan are always worth it.

The ablution facilities must go down as the best around! Great stop on the way between Francistown and Kashane. Self drive trip to Bird sanctuary also great outing, or just relax around the pool with a ice cold St Louis Lager. Kids loved the place. Will be back!

Nestled amongst the mopane I make a beeline for Nata Lodge when on the road. Feels like being on safari. The whole lodge burnt down a few years ago - risen from the ashes is a gem! Divinely comfortable luxury chalets with showers under the stars. Pitched a tent in the sand for 2 days when our 4x4 broke down...

Situated as it is on the road back (or from) South Africa we often stay at Nata Lodge. The rooms are excellent, the restaurant very good, the staff helpful and friendly.
