Leroo La Tau Lodge Makgadikgadi Pans N.P. Botswana
Leroo La Tau rises majestically above the Boteti River which stretches across the western border of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.
Accommodation is in twelve chalets, accommodating a total of twenty-four guests in camp. Each chalet is incredibly spacious with two beds, one double and the other single. The rooms have en-suite facilities that overlook the Boteti River. The chalets are spectacularly built at the edge of the escarpment and have glass sliding doors opening to a private deck affording incredible views. The main lodge area at Leroo La Tau is built out of natural wood, brick and thatch, housing the lounge, bar, dining room, reception area and curio shop.
The Boteti River is one of the far reaches of the Okavango Delta as it filters into the Kalahari Sands. It has not flowed strongly since 1995 but thanks to high floods seeping down the river system in 2009, the Boteti River is flowing once again. The park, populated by up to 30,000 zebra and wildebeest closely accompanied by predators, offers guests the chance to experience the exhilaration of seeing large concentrations of game and the resultant predator interaction.
Having explored the area and enjoyed a spectacular wildlife phenomenon on guided day and night game drives, guests can retire after dinner to a splendid fireplace overlooking the river. The lodge also offers a raised hide above the river where guests can enjoy the spectacular wildlife sightings that we’ve come to expect in this part of Botswana. The formerly dry riverbed is a major route of the zebra and wildebeest migration (June-November) and outside of the migratory time of the year, for those staying several nights, activities may include a day trip to Makgadikgadi or Nxai Pan National Park.
