Thamalakane River Lodge Overview
Thamalakane River Lodge is set on the banks of the Thamalakane River, just 19kms from Maun, and en route to Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve. Within easy reach of the airport, it provides a comfortable, mid-range option for those needing to overnight in Maun.

Thamalakane’s 18 stone-and-thatch chalets are spread out on either side of the main area. To one side are three ‘Jacana chalets’, two ‘Fish Eagle chalets’ and the one ‘Lilac-breasted Roller honeymoon suite’. To the other side are ten ‘Babbler chalets’ in two rows, spaced so that each overlooks the riverfront – with the front row affording the clearest views. Just beyond these, furthest from the main area, are two adjoining ‘Kingfisher family units’.

All the chalet interiors have feature stone walls, basic tea- and coffee-making facilities, 220-volt universal plug points, a ceiling or standing fan, mosquito net, digital safe, free-standing wardrobe or hanging space, a desk and an en-suite bathroom with shower. The furnishings are simple, slightly worn in places, but certainly adequate, and the beds are comfortable. Each chalet also has a small patio with outdoor seating and a river view. Limited toiletries are provided (soap, body lotion and conditioning shampoo) as well as insect repellent and spray, mosquito coils, tissues, bottled water, blankets, an umbrella and a shoe-polish kit.
