Imagine a place nestled deep in the wild heart of Africa… a tranquil place, along a lazily meandering river and surrounded by ancient, majestic Camelthorn trees. Imagine a place bursting with a rich diversity of life, where the air is pure and the stars are breathtakingly radiant in the night sky. That is Mogotlho Safari Lodge.
With a spectacular setting on the Khwai River, Mogotlho Safari Lodge is the perfect destination to indulge in first class hospitality and experience the magnificent wildlife of Mababe and the greater Khwai area.
Mogotlho Safari Lodge is a 24-bed lodge, with our newly refurbished accommodation consisting of 13 beautifully appointed and spacious en-suite, river facing safari tents, each with its own private deck. Our rooms include eleven double and two family tents, in addition to two conveniently located tour leader tents. Enjoy the thrill of the bush from the comfort of your tent as you wake to the stirring sounds of the wilderness around you.
Lodge facilities include a beautiful thatched-roof lounge, wildlife library, dining area and bar, as well as a swimming pool and boma area with views over the river. This is a focal point and highlight of the lodge where we treat you to first class lodge hospitality and delicious bush cuisine. It is also a place to relax completely and get back in tune with the metronome of the African heartbeat.
Experience the best of Botswana with our range of activities that are sure to remain etched in your memory. Elephant, lion, hippo, buffalo, leopard and wild dog are just a few examples of the spectacular wildlife that inhabit the Mababe area.
Game drives with our qualified, professional and knowledgeable guides take place daily in the cooler hours of the morning and afternoon. Our guides are passionate about sharing their knowledge of the bush and providing a game viewing experience of the highest quality.
Night drives in the concession provide a unique opportunity to discover the unusual and secretive nocturnal members of the animal kingdom. We go out on a two-hour drive where we get a chance to see a different world of nocturnal species including owls and a variety of predators.
Our guided bush walks along the banks of the Khwai River will get you even closer to nature and provide an opportunity to learn more about the indigenous flora and traditional medicinal uses of plants. This time also allows our guides to impart their tracking knowledge with hands-on experience and share the rich history of Botswana.
For bush lovers wanting more, we offer a full-day excursion to neighbouring Moremi Game Reserve and the surrounding Khwai area. Exploring the waterways of the Delta in a mokoro and game viewing from water level is a surreal and exhilarating experience which can be arranged with the day trip.
We are proud to be in partnership with our local community from Mababe. Cultural experiences in the village can be arranged for those wanting to learn more about the people who have inhabited and co-existed with wildlife in this area for centuries.
To round off a perfect day in the African bush, we offer bush dinners by candlelight as an optional extra – this is an Out of Africa experience in an exquisite location that is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.
