Elephant Sands Lodge

Elephant Sands Lodge is situated 53km North of Nata towards Kasane. This place is one of Botswana┬┤s well-kept secrets. Although the lodge mainly caters for a budget and camping market, a stay here will for sure exceed your expectations. It is well worth to stop here and spend some time on your way to the Falls, the Delta or the Kalahari.

Elephant Sands Lodge sits on a 23 000 ha private conservancy, with plenty of game all year around. As the name of the lodge gives away, elephants are the main attraction here. They can be seen at any time of the day and often come right up to the pool for a drink, even with people still cooling down from the heat of the day.

The 13 chalets are small, but tastefully decorated and look quite inviting. They all have ensuite toilets and showers, with all essential needed.

The food dinners are served in a buffet style and tastefully prepared by their Zambian chef. We all had second helpings, with says a lot for our bunch. The main aspect of the lodge is the outstanding hospitality we experienced here by Ben and his family, who run this place.

Game drives in 4x4 are on offer in the morning and late afternoon around the conservancy or on request at any other time. They can also organize trips to the Salt pans from here, but a flight with an ultra light aircraft over the area is a must-do and highly recommended.
