- Excursie naar de Makgidikgadi-pannen
Een ander interessant reisdoel tijdens uw rondreis door Botswana is Makgadikgadi Pans National Park; een immens groot gebied van maar liefst 12.000 km2 met een zeer bijzonder landschap. De Makgadikgadi zoutpannen veranderen eens in de zoveel tijd door zware regenval in helderblauwe wateren. Deze waterpartij trekt naast honderdduizenden flamingo's om te broeden, ook het grotere wild aan. De zoutpannen nemen zo'n 20% van dit natuurgebied in beslag. De zoutpannen zijn opgedroogde meren die tijdens het regenseizoen weer vollopen met water. Andere gedeeltes van het Makgadikgadi bestaan vooral uit vlaktes van gras en duinen
"well situated, clean and organised"
Campsite grounds are well maintained, sand only but always swept. Bathrooms were clean and always stocked, always warm showers. Service staff were friendly, knowledgeable and effective, even offered to phone the hardware store when I was looking for something. Food was good, prices very reasonable. Pool was a winner, and very well situated. Card services and facility for a tab made money very easy to manage. The drive through the salt flats was amazing as well, well worth seeing.
This lodge is a "stop over" lodge for those en route to somewhere. On arrival we found it difficult to navigate the short piece of gravel road between the main road and reception due to large puddles from recent rain and I think that it could be a challenge ifor it rained more and you were not in an off road vehicle. The accommodation we chose was a luxury tent ... which was very rustic with an outdoor shower. The on site bar and restaurant was reasonably priced and the food was good ... not great though. Our starter's were so salty that we couldn't finish them. As a main meal we had T Bone steaks which were very nice and tender but the vegetable of the day was clearly nothing more than mixed frozen veggies from a supermarket and had just been boiled. A big negative was the mosquito nets for the bed's. They seemed to narrow and we felt like they were lying on us as we slept. There needs to be another mechanism to "open them up" a bit more.
"Excellent luxury chalets"
It is unfortunate that our overland tour arrived too late in the day for us to be able to take advantage of the lovely swimming pool and bar area - we barely had time to check into our rooms before we needed to join the 4x4 trip into the Pan for sunset, the pool is off-limits after 8 pm, and we had to leave very early the following morning. The luxury chalets are very nice and spacious. The outside shower is a nice touch although it was a bit chilly outside when we showered at 4 am - fortunately there is also a bath tub inside. One of the blinds on one of the windows broke when we opened it, reported to reception and it was replaced immediately - most impressed. Lodge conveniently located a short drive from the Makgadikgadi Pans reserve. Free wifi in the pool area but we could not get it too work - too many other guests trying to connect at the same time on a very slow connection. Cannot comment on the restaurant food since our overland tour cook served us dinner that evening.
We often stopover here and have never been disappointed. The restaurant meals are good as is the service, if a little on the costly side, but this can be forgiven as the logistics to get supplies to this location must be a challenge in itself. Staff are friendly and helpful Campsite ablutions are clean, well maintained and well equipped.
"Great for overnight stay"
We stayed in the tented camp for two nights which included our trip to Nata Bird Sanctuary but felt that one night would have been sufficient. The staff were friendly, the food was tasty and reasonably priced. It is a perfect stop when traveling to Kasane. Other than the Bird Sanctuary there is not much else to do. Please bear in mind that the tented camp is just that .... tents .... and this is Africa so don't leave valuables lying around, even when you are sleeping. There is a large safe in the room. The outdoor shower is fabulous and the water pressure is excellent. Affordable rates... would go back. They have s large selection of Bird and animal books for sale in the curio shop
