WOODLANDS STOP OVER AND LODGE'S tranquil, out of the noisy city, location makes it an ideal destination for a few days or a quick stop over en-route to the Okavango Swamps, Chobe Game Reserve, Central Kalahari, Makgadigadi Pans, Botswana National Parks, Victoria Falls & other northern Zimbabwe destinations. Situated on the beautiful banks of the Tati River about 10km north of Francistown off A3 Nata/Maun Road. We are sited on the OLD HUNTERS' ROAD. An historic route travelled by hunters, explorers and missionaries of yesteryear.
