North West province - Close to the Botswana border – near Zeerust


Very easy to get to – off the N4

No self-drive allowed in the reserve. On arrival at the lodge you are taken out on game drives by the lodge’s guides.


Many different private lodges within the reserve with various price tags.

We stayed at Jaci’s Lodge where we met up with a photo host from Pangolin Photo safaris. The accommodation was comfortable and was fully catered

Jaci’s have an underground hide at the lodge which is available to guests at all hours. This eye level view of the water is stunning
