Nogatsaa Pans Lodge opens in Chobe Nationalpark

Early in November Nogatsaa Pans Lodge was opened in the heart of  Chobe Nationalpark.

Nogatsaa Pans Lodge is located in a sought-after wildlife destination at the heart of the Chobe National Park, and is the only lodge within the Nogatsaa region of the park. Situated 80 km south of the Chobe River front area, the area remains remote and untouched. This ensures an authentic Botswana safari experience in an area dotted with lookout hides overlooking open grasslands, pans and waterholes. Nogatsaa has a unique cluster of clay-bottom pans which fill up during the rainy season, and supplemented during the dry season. The permanent access to water draws in a wealth of wildlife to the area.

Nogatsaa is an eco-conscious, solar powered lodge and blends into its natural environment. Overlooking the Kwikamba Pan, the largest fresh water pan in the area. Nogatsaa’s 12 luxurious and spacious canvas tents host up to 24 guests and are designed to take advantage of these views. Each tent has an expansive private balcony and outdoor shower with a view of the pristine wilderness.


An alternative to gamedrives – game viewing from the deck of the lounge

When guests aren’t cocooned in the comfort and luxury of their tent, they can enjoy the main area of the lodge which boasts viewing decks, raised platforms and multiple lounges. The main area is thatched and overlooks a bustling pan where lion, buffalo, roan, sable and large breeding herds of elephant frequent.

Game drives take place through an established road network, along the Ngwezumba river, and meandering through mature Mopane woodlands providing exciting game viewing, a section of land that is also rich with bird life.
