Mogotlho Safari Lodge

Mogotlho meaning “camel thorn tree” is an authentic safari camp with a striking location along the Khwai River in the Mababe region on the edge of the Okavango Delta. Set on a private concession adjacent to both the Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, Mogotlho Safari Lodge lies in an interesting ecosystem created as the Khwai River feeds into the Mababe Depression. Best in the dry season, this camp offers a relatively affordable Botswana safari.

Set on a private concession adjacent to both the Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, the camp lies in an interesting ecosystem created as the Khwai River feeds into the Mababe Depression.  Best in the dry season, this camp offers a relatively affordable Botswana safari.

The spacious tents are all well-appointed along the Khwai River ensuring all enjoy lovely views of animals coming down to drink.  Each tent features a vast sleeping area, a private deck, and a generous bathroom with a large rain shower.

The main area is located in the perfect sunset location over the Khwai River and features a large thatched-roof lounge, library and dining area along with a vast deck with and outdoor bar, a firepit and an inviting swimming pool.

Activities include morning and afternoon game drives seasonal mokoro excursions, bush walks and village visits. Being in a private concession, night drives are also on offer, ensuring guests have an opportunity to experience the elusive and unique nocturnal wildlife.
