Thobolo’s Bush Lodge is situated one hundred and eight kilometres out of Kasane, all on a good tar road, except for the final ten kilometres into the bush. The route out of Kasane takes one along the main transit road through Chobe National Park towards the Namibian Border Post at Ngoma. Just before the border turn left towards the small village of Kachikau where the tar ends and becomes a four wheel drive road for the last ten kilometres to the lodge, Thobolo’s is ideally situated along a well driven route to Savuti, Moremi and Maun. The lodge overlooks the largest natural pan in the area, Barangwe Pan.
A large Baobab Tree (named The Attitude Tree by The Lodge) welcomes you at the entrance. Thobolo’s does offer easy day game drives to the Savuti Marsh area, Linyanti River and the upper section of the Chobe River front in the National Park, entering through the Ngoma entrance gate. Nearby Kachikau Village, which is one of the oldest villages in this area, boasts a very well stocked Botswana Basket shop and other attractions. An ideal base for the four wheel drive fraternity. In addition, the lodge offers transfers for the 2×4 fraternity by providing a secure lock-up in nearby Kachikau. Day drives into these prime wildlife destinations of Botswana are therefore available to all. The lodge is the first of its kind in Botswana for a number of reasons. The lodge has been built using a system called LGS construction (light gauge steel) which is being recognized world wide as one the greenest building methods available. Thobolo’s Bush Lodge has received the ECO TOURISM LEVEL – the highest eco level available.
