Thamo Telele

Vintage A lodge or tented camp with very good food and service, and many have swimming pools. The rooms/tents are of good size but perhaps not as large as "Classic" properties. Facilities could be "Classic," but located in a sub-standard game viewing area.

Thamo Telele is a small, recently renovated lodge located south of Maun airport on the western border of a farm on the Thamalakane River. It is suitable as an overnight stay for travelers on their way to or from the Okavango Delta. The lodge consists of eleven large Meru style tents with en suite facilities. All tents are on decks surrounded by trees, and are well spaced for privacy. The main thatched complex consists of a lounge, entrance hall and dining room. There is a large teak deck in front of the lodge surrounding large leadwood and birdplum trees. There is a swimming pool with a teak deck.

The lodge is situated on a small 494 acre (200 hectare) game farm with a variety of game including ostrich, zebra, kudu, duiker, black springbok, blesbok, jackal and several nocturnal species, one of which is the aardwolf. A recent bird count tallied over 120 species. A major focus is on giraffe education and research, which can be approached on foot or horseback.
