Okavango Delta

Drotsky's Cabins

Ideal as a stopover and even better for a few nights' downtime, Drotsky's is a home-grown institution in north-western Botswana on the Okavango River near the Namibia border.

As the Okavango turns south through Namibia's Caprivi region, the land flattens and the river spreads out to form the fat panhandle of the Delta. Drotsky's Cabins is right on the edge of the river and this family-run lodge has all the charm in the world.

Accommodation is in large brick A-frames near the water's edge with en suite bathrooms and a tree-shaded deck from which to admire the view. The bar is a lively waterhole for the locals, also right on the river, and the restaurant serves up a hearty if a little ordinary plate of grub.

Perfectly placed for a Namibia-Botswana combination tour, Drotsky's Cabins is about four hour's from Rundu, also on the Okavango River, giving you an excellent Okavango Delta experience without the Okavango Delta prices. From Drotsky's you can loop back to Windhoek via the Kalahari or continue on via the Delta proper and on to Victoria Falls by way of Chobe National Park for a truly awesome safari adventure.

Life at Drotsky's revolves around the river: fishing, boating and birding are the main attractions and the Tsodilo Hills - Botswana's only World Heritage Site - feature San rock art and are well worth the visit.

Audi Camp

If you’re after a large body of open water with an abundant food supply then you’re a fish eagle. Or a tourist trying to find your way to Audi Camp. Keep going. 12km out of Maun, through the bushes, by the river, it’s there. The eagle has landed. It’s got a restaurant, a bar and the same name as Namibia’s national bird. In the local lingo.

Thamalakane River Lodge

Thamalakane River Lodge on the edge of the Moremi Game Reserve offers an Okavango Delta experience without the expense of flying in to a remote and luxuriously-priced safari lodge inside the park.
