From standard hotel rooms to more luxury chalets and even the most basic Meru tents, Tautona Lodge has a room type to suit everyone. It isn’t fancy but it is welcoming and homely. It’s clean and comfortable. There’s loads of space, green lawns and friendly faces everywhere you look.
On a private reserve, there’s also plenty of wildlife: Eland, Oryx, Giraffe, Zebra, Impala, Ostrich, Kudu and birds galore. Spot a waterbuck or wildebeest from your room. Head out on an easy self-drive game drive on the reserve or join a guided game drive in an open safari vehicle.
Learn of the San people that call the Kalahari home, explore the bushveld on horseback, relax and enjoy a massage and barbeque under the starry night skies. When your hosts say “make yourself at home” they mean it and it’s easy to do since the meals are hearty and the atmosphere warm.
Not just the ideal stopover, between Maun heading to Namibia or into South Africa, but one of the only 'more-than-decent' options of accommodation in the area. Easily accessible and suitable for the whole family.
