"Stopover in Maun"

1 night Arrived 3 May 2011
"Thamalakane River Lodge is maybe a 10-15 min drive from Maun. It's a nice place to stay as an overnight stopover.

The rooms were comfortable, but the shower area is not particularly private. The dining area and deck overlooking the river are pleasant. Food and service good. Staff helpful.

Pool was average and could do with a clean. Would have used it if it hadn't looked so uninviting, as it was very hot." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia; 5n in South Africa; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"Thamalakane River Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 29 Jan 2011
"The rooms have no good lighting, not direct sunlight or lamps. It had a dark and gloomy feel. It was also so far from the city center that we felt it was too much of a bother to go into town. Decor needs updating. However, the staff were great at the office, and we had a pleasant meal at the restuarant.

The transportation service from Maun airport to the hotel and back was excellent." See all these reviews: 13n in Botswana

"Thamalakane River Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 22 Oct 2010
"I only spent one night here but the room and bed were very welcome after a long trip by road! The staff in the restruarant were very attentive and looking out over the river was lovely.

The breakfast served on the morning I left was stone cold, that seriously needs addressing." See all these reviews: 7n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"Excellent Thamalakane River Lodge"

1 night Arrived 2 Dec 2009
"I very much enjoyed my night in this restful lodge on the river at Maun, albeit some distance outside the town. It was great not to have to rush straight back to London after 9 nights in the bush.

Individual stone built bungalows with all modern comforts and an excellent restaurant in a great setting, with a pool. Very friendly staff and transfer from the airport all added to the convenience and comfort." See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana
