    "The river lodge is a paradise on earth. Watching the sunset over the river while having a beer was a very special experience. The staff were very helpful as well with planning our tour through Chobe. Many thanks. "

  • Review by Jenny B. from Stockton-on-Tees, United Kingdom

    "The lodge is set on the banks of a river and is so peaceful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. There's no air conditioning so some people may find the rooms too hot. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. We saw loads of different birds, squirrels, and a lizard while sitting in the bar, restaurant, or on our veranda. The sunset was amazing. If I ever end up in Maun again I would definitely return to Thamalanake Lodge."

  • Review by a traveler from Brits, South Africa

    "What a pleasant surprise to find a venue with such dedicated, competent, and friendly staff. Our expectations was exceeded. Our meals were scrumptious and the variety mind boggling to say the least. I absolutely loved the restaurant setting with the open sides and huge thatch overhead. The cool breeze and the huge trees was a delight. Finally, the rooms were well-appointed and the bathroom fit for a king! I cannot wait for my next visit. Thank you Thamalakane! "
