We were very fortunate to discover this gem while traveling Botswana on a recent fishing trip.
The friendly and attentive staff made a lasting impression from the word go, and really made us feel welcome in true Batswana fashion.
So much so that, what would have been a stay for the weekend only, turned into a stay of 8 days.
Even though we were not looking for 5* accommodation (but got 5* treatment), the tented housing and clean ablutions (shared for tented and campsite guests) were more then adequate to our needs, while there is also more luxurious units (en-suite bathrooms) available for the more fussy travelers.
Ever attentive to our needs, the staff really went out of their way to cater to our needs, even allowing us the use of 1 of the campsites(at NO extra charge) for our evening braai.
The ever helpful staff will organize activities on your behalf, like trips to the Victoria Falls, game drives, fishing trips etc.
They also offer some night time entertainment with traditional dancers and some live music.
The Lapa and bar, next to the crystal clear swimming pool, is a favorite spot after a days activities.
The restaurant offers affordable good quality breakfast, lunch and dinners.
Only a couple of minutes drives from the CBD of Kasane or Gazangula makes this the ideal place for a stay over or even as a main camp from where to explore the surrounding area.
The price conscious traveler won't find better accommodation at a better deal then Kwalape Lodge, so be sure to include them on your next African safari.
