Moela Safari Lodge

With stunning views over the Boteti River Valley, Moela Safari Lodge offers a front row seat to the zebra migration in Botswana. The design of this luxurious lodge is both innovative and environmentally conscious and is constructed entirely by the skilled hands of the Khumaga village community. Moela is located within a 770 hectare private tribal reserve bordering the Makgadikgadi National Park, close to Nxai Pan National Park and Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

Perched on the banks of the Boteti River Valley, Moela Safari Lodge offers a panoramic vista of one of the world’s most magnificent spectacles: thousands of zebras and wildebeests gather in the valley below, providing guests with a breathtaking spectacle of one of nature’s remaining great migrations.

Moela is located within a 770-hectare private tribal reserve that shares borders with the Makgadikgadi National Park, adjacent to the Nxai Pan National Park and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

Crafted by skilled Batswana craftsmen and artisans utilising locally sourced materials, Moela Safari Lodge seamlessly integrates modern elegance with traditional African architecture and design. Each room is meticulously designed to offer panoramic views of the abundant wildlife congregating at the water’s edge below, ensuring an unforgettable safari experience.

Each of the eight rooms are thoughtfully crafted, prioritizing ecological sensitivity and enhancing your encounter with the plentiful wildlife gathering at the water’s edge below. The lodge embodies an eco-chic, minimalist design ethos.

Throughout most of the year, witnessing hundreds of elephants in the Boteti riverbed is a common occurrence. Even when the migration isn’t directly visible from the lodge, wildlife is ever-present, with giraffes leisurely strolling by, hippos wallowing below, and a chorus of birdlife providing a melodic backdrop all day long. With this in mind, the lodge boasts two exceptional viewing decks: the “nest,” perched high for capturing wildlife from an aerial perspective, and the “riverbed” deck, offering guests eye-level photography opportunities and an immersive experience amidst the wildlife activity.

Being in a private concession, Moela Safari Lodge guests have exclusive access to game drives, walks, and night safaris in a pristine wildlife haven. When the Boteti River flows, guests can also embark on boating expeditions directly from the lodge. Furthermore, guests are able to access the Makgadikgadi National Park during their stay.

In addition to traditional safari activities, Moela pioneers purposeful and immersive experiences. For instance, instead of a standard bushwalk, guests can opt for a game drive accompanied by the remarkably knowledgeable local Bushmen. This provides a rare opportunity to learn from and bond with these experts, creating truly unique and enriching safari experiences.

Little Sable

Little Sable is a gem of a camp with sweeping views over the open grasslands of the game rich Khwai Private Reserve. Little Sable is a smaller and simpler camp than its big sister, Sable Alley, with the same good safari experience at a more affordable rate. It is a charming little camp with plenty of character and comfort, and a more down to earth style. The camp is simple but the game viewing luxurious, being so exclusive in this vast reserve.
