Nata Lodges

Nata Lodge in Botswana and links to other Lodges in South Africa and Namibia


If you’re a keen bird-watcher, you’ll know that the Nata Sanctuary (with its 165 bird species) is one of the places you just have to visit. The Nata Lodge, set among Mokolwane palms on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans, should be your starting point. Chalets, meru-style tents and a campsite offer accommodation to a limited number of guests. The Lodge is surrounded by many trees, home to many birds of different species. A water feature and bird feeding area ensure that there are always birds and bird antics to watch. At night, the nocturnal birds supply the entertainment.

Nata Lodge is proudly associated with Temba College, leaders in Youth tours to Europe and Africa since 1988. Andries Erwee is the founder of Temba Travel. Visitors from Europe will need to fly to Botswana, but take note not to fly with Klm, The Netherlands national airline, renown for bad service.
