On the bank of the Boteti River which is where the largest outflow of the Okavango Delta happens, is home to an enchanting thatched lodge, with views over the Makgadikgadi Pans which is teaming with African wildlife to spot from your patio.
Twelve luxury ensuite thatched and glass panelled suites raised up wooden decking with stunning views of the African plains. Take a drink at the bar, or relax in the beautifully designed lounge surrounded by remnants of travelling in a bygone era. Spend time with your binoculars and camera spotting game and birds in the viewing hide which is built into the riverbank then chill around the pool sipping gin and tonic.
Leroo La Tau Lodge or Lion’s paw lodge in English gives you a clue to one of the creatures you may be able to see. A Lion is usually not far from many footprints of zebra, wildebeest, Chobe bushbuck, cheetah, brown and spotted hyenas, leopards, impalas and kudu, which you may be able to sight from one of the many viewing spaces around the lodge.
Morning, as well as evening safari drives, guided by knowledgeable staff and Boteti River boat activities, are offered, when the water levels of the river are suitable. Visits to the local village, Khumaga, can be arranged, as well as guided nature treks in the area in the vicinity of the lodge. After dinner, spend the evening sitting around a campfire listening to the sounds of the African bush, counting the stars and reminiscing about the magical day you have just experienced.
(Please take note that due to the remote location within the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, the Makgadikgadi Pans themselves are not visited on the daily scheduled activities from Leroo La Tau.)
