Grassland Safari Lodge



Central Kalahari


Our stay at Grasslands was a wonderful debut to a 12 day trip to Botswana. The lodge accommodations are lovely and comfortable and have that ‘old school’ vibe that makes for a romantic memory of African Safaris. The staff and lodge manager were all very nice, fun and happy to provide real Botswanan menus that included Kudu and Eland game meat. All of it delicious. They were generous in every sense of the word. Our game drives were quite successful and we saw about 20 different kinds of animal including 2 rhinos. The bushman walk was interesting and information though a bit staged, however it would be difficult to have a true encounter with the San people otherwise. Over all, our 4 days when Grasslands was a fabulous introduction to desert life. – Julia G
