About Thamalakane River Lodge & Restaurant

Thamalakane River Lodge is ideally located an easy 20-minute drive from Maun Airport en route to the famous Moremi Game Reserve. It is a secluded haven of tranquility nestled in a grove of mature riverine trees on the bank of the Thamalakane River. The rambling lodge has an idyllic setting and is committed to service excellence. It is a delightful place to come home to after a day spent exploring.

Character en-suite stone chalets, some with private splash pools are positioned in the shade of the riverine forest, overlooking the river.

All chalets and common areas have terraces that take advantage of the serene 180 degree view of the riverbanks lined with fluttering reeds visited by an ever changing array of water fowl and birds.

The restaurant is a rambling thatch and wood structure with magnificent views of the Thamalakane River. Dusk is spectacular, with the sun setting the river ablaze as it slowly dips behind the trees.

The widely acclaimed restaurant offers a formal dining area where exceptional a la carte meals are served or choose the buffet option. Breakfasts are included in the rates.

Thamalakane also has an option of a character boma evening (fenced flagstone terrace with and open air cooking area) at the far end of the dining room, book your seat on the decks overlooking the Thamalakane River today.
