Travelers' Choice
In the North-Western corner of Botswana, situated on the banks of the Okavango River and in the panhandle of the Okavango Delta, you will find the lush green lawns and tall, shady indigenous trees, of a paradise called Drotsky's Cabins. The area is a birding and fishing paradise, and Drotsky's is the ideal stop over for tourists en route from or to Namibia and a wonderful place to relax for a few days while enjoying a boat cruise on the Okavango River, or visit the nearby World Heritage Site of Tsodilo Hills and Mahangu National Park.

This lunch stop was arranged by our guides, we had come to see Pels Fish Owl which roosts nearby. Our lunch was Fish & Beef, salads and veggies and a delicious cheesecake. The lady that owns this property was very attentive and made us very welcome. The grounds are beautiful and we wandered around birding before our trip on the river. Lots of butterflies in the garden and the pool looked very inviting on a hot day. Free WiFi. Recommended.

Camp site no 3. Beautiful big trees in our camp site. Naughty little monkeys live in the beautiful big trees! The ablutions block is clean, electricity ensures that there is plenty of hot water The ambiance, all the staff, the entire setting of Drotskys is fantastic. The deck overlooking the river is tastefully set up. There is a beautiful riverine forest walk to the main lodge where there is WiFi. We simply loved this whole place and would by pass the camping and book into the lodge next time. It is run with precision, the gardens are something to be seen, there’s a lovely swimming pool. Bird life is abundant and this is a wonderful place to getaway to! Could have spent far more time here!

We spent 2 nights camping at Drotsky's. Great resort with friendly and efficient staff. We loved the bird life and the river cruise, spotting wildlife and doing a little fishing. Just be aware of monkeys frequenting the campsites.
