Leroo La Tau
Leroo La Tau is situated 140 kilometres southeast of Maun, on the western boundary of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The lodge’s 12 rooms and game viewing hide are perched along a cliff, 10 metres above the Boteti, a once dry river which began flowing again in 2008 after nearly two decades of drought. From this vantage point, wildlife can be seen coming to drink at the opposite riverbank, which stretches away into the parks interior. Game concentrations are at their highest towards the end of the dry season (between July and October) when the Boteti provides a vital water source for migrating herds of zebra and wildebeest. Game viewing excursions are by motorboat and 4x4 safari vehicle, and guests can also join a cultural tour of the nearby Khumaga village.
Our view of Leroo La Tau
Leroo La Tau is currently the most upmarket accommodation option from which to explore the western section of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. It’s a good lodge with a lovely outlook and friendly service. The best time to visit is between July and October during the annual zebra and wildebeest migration and when wildlife concentrations are at their peak. For the rest of the year there isn’t any particular experience that would put it high on our list of Botswana’s top destinations.
