We stayed one night, the dinner was poor, breakfast worse. The place certainly needs refurbishment, a general overhaul and most of all new management. Too expensive for what you get. Far from being tranquil, as overlanders stay there too. We saw more animals along the road than around the lodge.

I have both camped and stayed in Chalets. This trip we stayed in chalets. Great facilities, lovely game drives either guided or on your own. Meals are good and wholesome. Staff are very helpful. Good economic way to safari. Nice location about halfway between Kasane and Maun.

I camped here, but a few people decided to upgrade in the chalets and spoke very highly of them. This is a particularly nice camp and the showers are more than satisfactory. Having a quiet drink in the bar at night a big bull elephant came to have a drink in the watering hole. Be warned you can hear elephants...

This has to be the ultimate in Peace , Tranquility and Elephants all thrown together. The Tented Chalets are unique , spacious and well situated around the waterhole. Elephant Sands is well managed and has conservation at heart and Mike is passionate about "his Elephants". Stop over for 2 nights to have a greater appreciation for the place.

A real oasis in the middle of the African bush, a very comfortable stopover in Botswana between Francistown and Kasane.....but one night is not enough....you will fall in love with this place....here you see elephants drinking water right infront of your tnet or chalet or even while you are sitting in the restaurant or bar. What a neat and beautiful...

The lodge is located on a bit of a bumpy road. Our Hyundai I20 was more than enough with some careful driving. The owners were charming and very relaxed. The staff very friendly. We needed Botswana SIM cards which they procured. The highlight is of course the elephants coming to the watering hole in the evening. We stayed in a...

We LOVED this lodge and have committed to financially support theircharitable goals! Not only is this a lovely place to stay, but they do wonderful things for the elephants and local community. The lodge is built near a man made watering hole, and along an elephant migrating route- so we enjoyed watching the elephants walk through camp and drink water...

This place was so cool! We loved every inch of this place. Food was so delicious! The tents were huge, clean, and nicely updated. I was surprised to see how nice they were considering they were tents! And the elephants. Wow. Blew me away. Such a unique hotel experience and we wish we could've stayed longer. G-Adventures surprised us with...

We stayed in tented accommodation – these are large twin rooms. Very clean and tidy. We stayed one night in December 2016. The staff were very helpful and offered to move our room as the toilet wasn't working properly. Good restaurant / bar with great view of elephants at watering hole. We were unable to do bush walk as guide...
