About
Description
Thamalakane River Lodge is ideally located an easy 20-minute drive from Maun Airport en route to the famous Moremi Game Reserve. It is a secluded haven of tranquility nestled in a grove of mature riverine More trees on the bank of the Thamalakane River. The rambling lodge has an idyllic setting and is committed to service excellence. It is a delightful place to come home to after a day spent exploring. Less
