We have been travelling through southern Africa with painting groups the last 7 years, and this year we went back to Chobe, Botswana and booked the safari tents at Kwlape lodge.
The lodge offers such a lot - including a great atmosphere - whether you decide to stay in the beautifull cottages or in the safari tents as we did. Sharing the communal showers and toilets gave no problems whatsoever. It was lovely to walk amongst the trees and bushes in the moonlight or early morning hours.
We had full board all week and the food was very nice. Freshly made sandwiches for lunch and nice dishes in the evening.
Our hosts Johan & Nicklas went out of their way to make our stay perfect and even took us on early morning walks to visit nearby villages and a local school.
The bar / pool area was lovely and quickly became our favorite place. We were surprised on our last night - fantastic karimba players and a group of african dancers entertained us while we enjoyed a fabulous braai. What an evening!
Kwalape lodge showed to be an amazing place for us as a group of artists. It is a paradise of beauty, peace & quiet, full of wonderful birds and flowers and the tents offered lovely covered areas just perfect for painting. The staff were absolutely kind and gave us fantastic service. A true African Paradise. We want to come back.
