    Gute Unterkunft, verkehrsgünstig gelegen

    Die Anlage selbst ist sehr schön, besonders der Pool hat uns gefallen. Die Zimmer sind groß uns hell, das Bett sehr gut. Leider ist der Zustand nicht der allerbeste, das Licht an den Betten und direkt über den Betten ging nicht. Ich hatte es sofort Martin an der Rezeption gesagt, leider hat sich nichts getan. Der Handtuchhalter im Bad war nur Dekomäsig angebracht und ist bei Benutzung sofort zu Boden gefallen. Kleinigkeiten, aber schade drum. Das Abendessen war sehr gut, das Frühstück ( Englisch breakfast) auch sehr gut. Preise sehr an den Deutschen Preisen angelehnt. Insgesamt waren wir positiv überrascht.

    Du camping au lodge, c'était top !

    Notre nuit de camping au Pelican Lodge and Camping s'est finalement transformée en nuit en chambre très confortable après un enlisement de notre 4x4 dans le Nata Bird Sanctuary situé à une dizaine de kilomètre du lodge. L'accueil a été parfait et toute l'équipe du Pelican Lodge and Camping s'est mobilisée pour nous aider dans notre galère. On y a passé un bon moment et cela nous à permis de rencontrer et discuter avec les guides locaux qui sont géniaux et nous ont vraiment aider. Le personnel est agréable, les installations sont super (on recommande la douche bien chaude au clair de lune dans les chambres équipées d'une baignoire mais aussi d'une douche extérieure). On n'a pas eu le temps de tester la piscine mais elle est grande et très bien entretenue. Le petit déjeuner comme le restaurant sont très corrects. Bref on vous recommande ce lodge pour une étape avant ou après la régions des pans. En tous cas si nous revenons au Botswana, nous y reviendrons sans hésiter !

    Friendly welcome. During our 1day stay (03-2019) there were road construction work nearby. Also during the night. The stone-dust cloud was over the campsite. We guess, it will be a nice place, after roadwork completness
