Overview

Leroo La Tau safari camp is located beside the only water source for miles in the Makgadikgadi Pans: the Boteti River. The camp thus overlooks the incredible migration of game from the dry Salt Pans to the river. What it bears witness to is not a struggle among animals to survive, however, but a thriving ecology, as the surrounding area populates with diverse wildlife that come to drink and bathe just outside your room.

Game viewing in Leroo La Tau is fantastic. You are positioned to watch the second largest zebra migration in the world during dry season. Joining them are lions, wildebeest, Chobe bushbucks, leopards, cheetahs, brown and spotted hyenas, impalas, kudus, jackals, porcupines, genets, caracals, and even, on rare occasions, white rhinoceros. Whilst Leroo La Tau translates to ‘Lion’s Paw’ in English, it offers guests the chance to spot a plethora of game, and also provides spectacular bird-viewing opportunities: rare wattled crane, vultures, saddle billed storks, and many other birds flock to enjoy the surrounding wetlands in the heat.

The camp consists of 12 twin bedded suites (one double and one single bed per suite) that accommodate a maximum of 24 guests. The luxurious thatched chalets are glass-fronted and raised on wooden platforms, offering a high 270-degree panoramic view of the Makgadikgadi parks. En-suite bathrooms complete the luxurious living experience the camp offers.

Leroo La Tau is set in a superb site on the banks of the Boteti River. Beneath its thatched roof lies a lounge, a wildlife reference library, and a cocktail bar. The camp’s buffet-styled and individually-plated food is served in its exquisite dining area, which often precludes an evening spent around a campfire boma on the cliffs of the Boteti River. Designed to dissolve the boundaries between living space and wildlife as much as is possible safely, the camp has a covered viewing hide that overlooks the river banks and a swimming pool past which hippos may occasionally stroll.

Unique to the camp are the open Land Cruiser game drives that run day and night as well as its boat activities along the Boteti River. There are great cultural excursions to Khumaga Village and guided nature walks amongst the terrain surrounding the lodge. Nxai Pan day trips provide a brilliant opportunity to explore new areas of the Kalahari desert, which are often populated by elephants. Leroo La Tau’s staff are friendly and often recount fascinating hunting stories from their childhoods around the boma, and have even been known to sing for guests as a well-versed choir.

Only children over the age of six years are welcome at Leroo La Tau. Families with children aged six to 11 will need to book private activities for an additional cost. There are no family units available, so parents will need to split up into separate tents if they have more than one child with them. Overall, Leroo La Tau is a lodge that offers a great platform for game and bird observation, but is more suitable for families with older children than it is for those with younger children.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
