Immerse yourself in the enchantment of the most opulent safari lodge in Botswana, where captivating lagoon views teem with wildlife, promising a stay of pure indulgence in an exclusive concession area deeply connected to nature.

This lodge stands as one of the delta’s largest and most iconic five-star retreats, boasting twelve exquisite suites, picturesque terraces, a spa with a gym, and a twenty-meter pool. A rich tapestry of African art is showcased in the gallery, while the Ancestral Boma, the camp’s authentic heart, guides you through a beautifully curated journey into the area’s heritage.
