The Detail

What once functioned as a harbour control building now stands as a beacon of luxurious accommodation..

The transformation has resulted in 10 lavish suites, each one exuding its distinct character and modern aesthetic. These are not mere rooms but curated experiences in themselves.

Perched on your private deck at Pelican Point Lodge, you become an audience to nature's grand theatre. At sunrise, the stage unfolds with performances both majestic and intimate. Watch the seals playfully surf the waves and leisurely bask in the sun.

In the deeper waters, you will see the dolphins slice through the waves, resembling a synchronized dance with each jump, while the mighty whale makes a guest appearance, with its impressive size.

The lodge offers an array of activities, ensuring that every guest finds something tailored to their interests:

  • Engage in water sports or take a leisurely stroll on the pristine beaches.
  • Go for guided nature walks, understanding the local flora and fauna.
  • Experience the majesty of the marine world with dolphin and whale watching tours.

So far, great service
This review is for the booking only as we have not taken our trip yet. Safari expert Sara Van Coille has been great to work with. We booked later than we planned and she was able to come up with an itinerary that was perfect for our group. Sara has responded to all our questions and was very quick to get back to me. From our experience so far, we would definitely recommend

Botswana Experience
Anja, our agent, was very kind and helpful all the time to organize the perfect trip. She did it quickly and efficiently. The amount of days we spent in every place was perfect to really enjoy the hotels and the different activities they proposed (in general the hotels are very nice but we don’t have the time to really experience the place but here we did). Also the selections of hotels was very very nice. Nice infrastructure, excellent service (very professional) and outstanding places to visit (all the parks were great). We had a wonderful experience with the company in Botswana.
