Grassland Bushman Lodge is situated on the western side of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in the Ghazni district and is part of a private wildlife reserve of some 15 000 hectares. The family who runs the Lodges have been in the area for 5 generations, and are proud to share their passion and knowledge of the area. Grassland is a small lodge, and accommodates only 16 guests, in comfortable en-suite (shower, basin, and toilet) chalets. Electricity is provided by the generator. The main Lodge area consists of a large lounge and dining room, bar area, with an adjacent swimming pool. This complex overlooks a waterhole and allows for some excellent game viewing.

Day 2 & 3:

Oddballs Camp

After your last activity and breakfast, you will be transferred back to Maun for your light aircraft flight to Oddballs Camp.

From approximately May – December it is possible to camp overnight, in or on the outskirts of the Moremi Reserve (it always depends on the water levels which can be different each year). Guests spend their first and last nights in Oddballs. Camping in the bush is a unique way to experience the heart of the Delta, and something that you will remember for the rest of your life. Early morning and late afternoon game walks or mokoro trips are combined with relaxing in the shade of the trees, and the occasional swim.

There are no facilities outside of Oddballs, and you will be thoroughly briefed upon arrival as to what to expect on the trail. During the time spent away from the main camp, you will become immersed in the African wilderness, the absence of other travelers and the abundance of new and intriguing sights and sounds will make the trip an unforgettable experience. In addition to the better-known animals such as elephants, buffalo, antelope, lions, and wild dogs you will also have many chances to delve into the intricacies of the environment. You can learn about the construction of termite mounds, local uses for the indigenous flora, and many tales of how the animals and birds came to be so weird and wonderful.

You will have a Guide assigned to you for the length of your stay, one for every two people. The Guides have been living in the Delta all their lives and are eager to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you.
