Wildtrack Safaris Eco Lodge:A family dream ten years in the making came to fruition in 2015. After some time of research and looking at global trends, it became evident that the need existed for more self-sustaining eco lodges in Botswana. This need stems from the fact that the country has few precious resources – which thus need to be conserved and used wisely. It, furthermore, became clear that global tourists are showing an increased interest in supporting such establishments. In fact, a recent survey conducted by ‘Tourism Concern’ in the United Kingdom, indicated that 96% of travelers stated they would rather stay in an environmentally responsible resort – than a five star property (Reference – Botswana Ecotourism Best Practices Manual). With these factors in mind, a decision was made to go “Green”. Wildtrack Safaris Eco Lodge is situated in Botswana, located near the village of Pandamatenga, in the beautiful Chobe region, with the lodge bordering Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. Botswana has diverse areas of wildlife habitat – In addition to the delta and desert areas; there are grasslands and savannas, where Lion, large concentrations of Zebra, Eland, Blue Wildebeest, antelopes, other mammals and birds are found. Northern Botswana also has one of the few remaining large populations of the endangered Wild Dog, as well as being famous for having the world’s largest concentration of Elephants. The lodge comprises of eleven luxury, thatched suites – along with a bar, lounge, and dining area. The swimming pool and boma overlook a lit waterhole often frequented by Elephant, Lion and numerous other mammals. The lush tree-filled lawns alongside, lend themselves to lying back, relaxing and star-gazing at night. Guest activities on offer include two daily game drives, guided bush walks, tours to Chobe and Hwange National Parks, as well as interactive tours within the community of Pandamatenga, allowing guests the opportunity to contribute towards ongoing community enrichment programs.
