Blissful stop over

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Jun 2022via mobile
Super neat, tidy and the attention to detail in the rooms are impeccable. The hosts thought of everything, from coffee and cookies in our room to braai kits that can be purchased at reception. We where delighted to see bush babies right in front of our stoep. We only stayed a night as a stop over, but would definitely stay longer for future trips!

We always enjoy stopping over at Woodlands Stop Over & Lodge. The comfortable accommodation and lovely lawn is a welcome end to a long days travelling. We also enjoy having a braai and relaxing in the garden.

We were referred to Woodlands Stopover by different friends.
We did not make a booking but received friendly efficient service on our arrival in the evening.
What a beautiful spot to relax in after a long drive.
Definitely worth staying there and we will be back.

Hello Jannie (FellowTraveler713032)
Thank you so much for the great rating and your lovely review of us here at Woodlands Stop Over & Lodge.
So very happy to hear that you found our camping sites to be very clean and neat making camping such a great pleasure. Our staff, in all areas, do work very hard to maintain the facilities in the condition that you found it! Always good to get a warm shower especially in winter --- but like any busy household-- it can get a little swamped if many people are camping. Glad you could listen to all the night sounds without the dreaded interference of many notifications continually bombarding you.
We do so appreciate your strong recommendation and look forward to having you return to Botswana soon and of course to us here again at Woodlands!
Kind regards,
Mike & Anne West (Owners)

We would like to complement the management for the availability and excellent quality of the ready to eat food and braai pack.
The accommodation is absolutely great and is most welcome after the day drive.

We needed a stopover place on our way through Botswana back to South Africa and we discovered this lovely place. A few kms off the main road but no problem. We were delighted to find this little retreat in a garden like setting. It was a welcome change from camping. the rooms were a nice size and very welcoming and comfortable. We slept so well. worth the stopover and would have even been better during the rainy season to see more birdlife and the river as it was dry in May.

Hello Christine2575,
Wow! What a great rating of us here at Woodlands Stop Over & Lodge - thank you!
We are so very happy to hear that you found us tucked away in a serene spot--- and that the road was in relatively good condition after the good rainy season and you were able to travel along it with no problems.
Also happy to hear that your night's sleep was good and that you would recommend us and even come back again to see more birds as well as our Tati River flowing. We look forward to welcoming you back!
