You will be met on arrival in Maun and assisted onto your flight to Leroo La Tau, a flight of about 30 minutes. Your guide will be waiting on arrival and will transfer you to camp, a game drive of about 15 minutes, depending on sightings along the way. With twelve luxury glass fronted suites Leroo La Tau overlooks the Boteti River with magnificent views of the animals of the region as they come to the river to drink.
After settling into your room and having explored the camp your guide will discuss the activities conducted at Leroo La Tau, the current conditions and wildlife movements which change with the seasons and daily. You guide will also discuss your particular interests. Scheduled day and night game drives explore this fascinating area with boats exploring the river dependent on water levels. Guided walks and visits to the local village at Khumaga are available too. Due to their location within the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, the Makgadikgadi Pans themselves are not visited on daily scheduled activities from Leroo La Tau. Visits to Nxai Pan and Baines Baobabs are available on visits of 3 nights or more only (please speak to us for extensions).
After some refreshments you will set off on your afternoon activity, perhaps a game drive into the concession or if the water levels are up, a boat along the Boteti River.
The next morning you wake early and enjoy a light breakfast before setting off on your morning drive, exploring the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and around the Boteti River. Leroo La Tau means as ‘lion’s paw’ and sightings of the camp’s namesake are common. The area also has abundant antelope, Zebra and Wildebeest as well as other varied wildlife, including Leopard, Cheetah, Brown and Spotted Hyena. Returning after about 4 hours on your game drive you will enjoy brunch and have a couple of hours rest or relaxing by the pool before you set off on your afternoon drive or boat safari.
Sundowner drinks will be served by your guide while you are on your drive or boat ride, returning as it gets dark to a roaring fire and dinner.
