Situated by a waterhole and with a river running by the decks of the luxurious tents, this lodge is very comfortable, extremely well run and very close to the Savuti Marsh. if you like elephants, this is the place to come. We saw numerous large herds on our game drives with the excellent Gee - a fount of knowledge about the fauna, flora and even the medicinal qualities of impala droppings. IN the evening there is a regular stream of elephants in family herds down to the waterhole as you enjoy a pre-dinner drink, dinner and then relax with a brandy on the deck. The lodge was smoothly and efficiently run but with great warmth by the Batswana staff. The food was excellent and plentiful and the rooms comfortable and sited overlooking the river. At 6.15 one morning, as we prepared for our morning drive, two wild dogs chased an impala through the river 10 yards from our tent deck and the lucky occupants of the next tent regularly had a leopard sitting just over the river, in the open less than fifty yards from their tent. On drives we saw lots of lions - particularly large males, huge herds of buffalo on the swamp and a pack of wild dogs. If there is a drawback it is the number of other vehicles around - not like Kruger but we rarely drove ten minutes without seeing other tracks from the neighbouring lodges or campsites.
