Leroo La Tau Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
The Makgadikgadi National Park, 80 000 square kilometers in size, the destination of herds of migrating Zebra; it has an unspoilt beauty unlike that of any other part of Botswana. During the wet season, from late November through March and into April guests will experience enormous herds of the annual Zebra and Wildebeest migration. Birding is now fantastic, as the pans are filling up and guests will observe the migratory waterfowl (flamingos, storks, Wattled crane, ducks, terns, etc.) Night drives are a highlight and guests will view unique desert wildlife (Brown Hyena, Aardvark, Aardwolf etc).
During the dry or winter months, the migrations move westwards to the water available in the Boteti River but many desert-adapted creatures remain resident. This is the domain of the brown hyaena, a shy and elusive creature, as well as suricates, aardvarks and small bustard species.
Leroo La Tau has guided day and night game drives. When the Boteti River has high water levels there are boat trips to be enjoyed. Cultural tours to the local Khumaga Village are also available. The lodge offers a variety of activities which include both day and night drives as well as day trips to Nxai Pans and the famous Baines’ Baobabs.
