Thamalakane River Lodge

Thamalakane River Lodge, with beautiful river views, lets you launch into the beauty of the Okavango Delta while living in comfort and style.
Thamalakane River Lodge is placed on the banks of the Thamalakane River, just 19kms from Maun, and en route to the famous Moremi Game Reserve.

En-suite stone chalets, some with private splash pools are positioned in the shade of the riverine forest, overlooking the river. Chalets, public areas and our swimming pool take advantage of the 180 degree view of the riverbanks lined with fluttering reeds visited by an ever changing array of water fowl, and birds and the occasional hippo. It is a delightful place to come home to after a day spent exploring.

Our widely acclaimed restaurant serves a la carte and buffet style meals from an ever changing menu. Dusk is spectacular, with the sun setting the river ablaze as is slowly dips behind the trees.
Enjoy a riverfront table with fantastic food and drink served by Thamalakane’s friendly staff. Private decks can be pre-booked on request. 

Choose from our varied a la carte menu for your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Lunches include hamburgers, sandwiches, focaccia’s and pizzas made in a traditional wood fired oven.
