LEROO LA TAU – BOTETI RIVER – MAKGADIKGADI PANS NATIONAL PARK

Leroo La Tau is perched high above the Boteti River which stretches across the western border of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.  The park is populated by around 30,000 zebra and wildebeest closely accompanied by predators and offers the chance to experience the exhilaration of seeing large concentrations of game and the resultant predator interaction.

With just 12 thatched luxury ensuite chalets all overlooking the magnificent Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, the lodge features a raised hide above the river where you can sit and enjoy the wildlife.

Explore the area and enjoy the spectacular wildlife on day and night game drives, cruise down the river on a boat safari and those spending a little longer at the lodge can visit Nxai Pan or experience a sleep out under the stars!

LOCATION

The camp is set next to the Boteti River which borders the western Makgadikgadi Pans National Park in southern Botswana.

Access is via a light aircraft flight to the airstrip where you are met and transferred to the camp via a game drive which is around 30 minutes.

Alternatively, you can transfer the 140km from Maun by road which is mostly tarred – the last stretch is a sandy road suitable for 4×4 vehicles only.

LODGE

Laroo La Tau has 11 luxurious and very comfortable thatched and glass-fronted suites raised on wooden platforms high on the banks of the Boteti River with 270 degree panoramic views of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.

Additionally, the camp has one family room which is close to the main area giving easy access for the family. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit is set on the edge of the Boteti River offering exceptional views over the Boteti Valley and into the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park where you can see the annual zebra migration from the deck of your room.

All the rooms are cooled by fans and have ensuite bathrooms with a shower, double hand basin, toilet and gowns, tea coffee making facilities and a small safe for valuables.  A range of African biodegradable soaps, conditioning shampoo, hand wash, body lotion with insect repellent and shower caps are supplied.

In the main lodge is a dining room, reading room and bar with expansive wooden decks and a plunge pool.

24-hour power supplied by solar plant, backed up by generator. There are 220V AC plug’s in the guest rooms to charge electrical appliances.  A guest laptop is available with basic internet connection in the library – no WIFI is available in camp.

GIVING BACK

The CARES philosophy is the foundation on which Desert & Delta Safaris is built, highlighting our core values in developing human potential and building a sustainable tourism model.

Established in 1982, Desert & Delta Safaris is one of the most successful safari operators in Botswana. Their philosophy and core values in supporting people and protecting the natural heritage of Botswana is at the forefront of how they run their business.

Through a variety of initiatives, they support local communities, focused on creating career opportunities in the tourism industry.

Desert & Delta Safaris employs approximately 320 staff members within the eight safari lodges and the remote location of properties means access to medical care is a challenge, so they employ a full time company doctor. Run as a family practice, the company doctor conducts regular visits to each of the properties allowing him to get to know the staff individually to understand their specific medical needs as a GP but ensuring that the best medical advice and mentoring is freely available.

The company is eco-conscious, driving sustainable and innovative initiatives within daily operations which protect and limit the impact of business on the areas in which they work.

As members of Botswana Tourism, several of the Desert & Delta Safaris camps and lodges are EcoTourism rated, the highest status recognised by Botswana Tourism for sound sustainable tourism initiatives. This includes the usage of greywater treatment plants, careful waste management protocols as well as the use of sustainable building materials wherever possible.

LAROO LA TAU IS CLOSED DURING FEBRUARY EVERY YEAR 

THE LODGE WELCOMES FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN AGED 6 YEARS AND OLDER
