Nearby attractions and activities:
Activities on offer are a complete range of bush experiences from game drives into the reserve, fly camping and the popular bush breakfast. Or you could try our guided walks that interpret the tracks and signs of the wild. All activities are focused into the Khutse Game Reserve. Khutse is renowned for its ancient pans that once formed part of Africa’s largest inland lake. The waterholes now attract a wide variety of game and bird-life and in turn attracting the predators including leopard, cheetah and our famous black mane lion.
Absorb the local culture and traditions of the San (Basarwa) people by enjoying our compulsory bushman experience and reflect on centuries of the local history of the land. The Bushmen are hunter-gatherers, who for thousands of years supported themselves in the desert through their skills. They hunt (mainly various kinds of antelope) but their daily diet has always consisted more of the fruits, nuts and roots which they seek out in the desert. They make their own temporary homes from wood that they gather. Our popular nature walks will bring you into the bush where you will meet the large variety of African bird-life that are specific to our area.
The lodge is situated 220 kilometers north-west from Gabarone, and is the final frontier before Central Kalahari Desert and Central Kalahari Game Reserve.
