“Peaceful Overnight stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Thanks to Peter,Susan and the staff for making this stop over so comfortable and welcoming.The dinner was scrumptious.The room was very clean and the décor so eye catching. All the staff were friendly and helpful,even helped search for our car keys which we misplaced!The lodge is situated near the main road, but we didn't hear the traffic and had a wonderfully peaceful sleep.We really enjoyed our first trip to Nata and are hoping to go back to visit the near by pans to see the flamingo! We saw two enormous elephant on the road between Nata and Maun!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

I staed here during a self drive road trip of Botswana. Check in at the ‘Lodge’ was fast and efficient and we were shown to a double room. The room was large, and very clean with a comfortable King size bed, a full bathroom with bath, the room also had a TV, fridge and a small outside sitting area. I think the use of the term ‘Lodge’ is a bit misleading as it is more of a Motel / Truck stop place, but the grounds are pleasant with a swimming pool, bar area and a restaurant. We had a power cut soon after arriving but fortunately the kitchen is gas powered so still got to have the very good value 3 course meal from the menu. The owners were really nice and chatty, and gave us a map of the area with directions as to how to find birds and hippos in the river if we wanted. the only dissadvantage was as it is close to the road it was a little noisy at times in the night.

I travel extensively in Botswana and Zambia and can recommend an overnight in
the village of Nata, Botswana at Northgate.

Managed by Peter McLelland and Flower. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Rooms are air-conditioned, spacious, clean and have great beds. Best
night's sleep last night in ages.

Being a business trip, I sampled all meals served throughout my 2 day
stay. Portions are huge, proper cheeseburgers hit the right spot. Their
ice cream with hot chocolate sauce is the real deal, all home made and great. No
plastic squeeze tube with imitation choc here.

Definitely worth an overnight and good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for room with bath or shower

Susan and Peter were great as were all the staff, the food was excellent as was the room, they were very helpful and if we were to stay in the area there were some interesting things to do, we had a family room non thatched which was what we wanted there were thatched rooms at the lodge if thats your preference, the swimming pool looked great.
