Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans camps - Leroo La-Tau
Leroo La-Tau (Footprints of the Lion) lies on the high banks overlooking the Boteti River which traditionaly joined the Okavango with the Makgadikgadi Pans generations ago. The lodge is built of wood, reed and thatch with great glass windows along the front of the main lounge and dining room that overlook the expansive surrounding bush. The safari style tents are set on wooden decks and each have en-suite bathrooms. You can expect to find a toasty hot water bottle to warm your toes in the cool nights.
Abundance of wildlife in this area does depend on the seasons and so if you come in the dryer months, you can expect to see elephant, lion, wild dog and a number of large herbivores coming to drink at the water holes that still dot the Boteti. During this period, there is also a large annual wildebeest and zebra migration which brings with it the inevitable predators. The rains transport the area into a lush green oasis and game disperses but there is still much to see by way of smaller animals, many birds in breeding plumage and wild flowers.
