Island Safari Lodge
Island Safari Lodge: Our View
For a comfortable budget friendly accommodation option in Maun, Island Safari Lodge is well worth considering.
The lodge is one of the original Maun properties developed for tourism and is set on a large 300 acre wooded lot giving guests an out-of-town atmosphere, whilst only being 10km away from Maun airport in town.
Situated under large riverine trees, on the banks of the (currently dry) Thamalakane River, the lodge offers a large campsite, 2 swimming pools, 12 chalets, 6 off river rooms and 6 family rooms, a children’s play ground, and a full bar and restaurant on site. The rooms are all showers en suite and have DSTV and air conditioning.
Island Safari Lodge also conveniently operates their own mokoro excursions, mobile safaris, and motorboat safaris in times of high water. Day trips, and multi day safaris are available on all options. They also offer walking trails on the property, and when there is water in the Thamalakane River, short local mokoro rides and sunset boat cruises may be enjoyed. These safaris are well recommended and we have many guests who have raved about their experiences with Island Safari, including the quality of the guiding and their first rate vehicles and equipment.
