About Woodlands Stop Over and Lodge
Woodlands Stop Over and Lodge is situated on the site of the Hunters' Road and overlooks the Tati River, 10 km north of Francistown on the Nata, Maun and Kasane A3 route. It is an ideal stopover (or destination) to break the long journey for those exploring the northern territories of Botswana and for those wanting to be safely off the roads before dark.
There are grassed Campsites with their own braai area as well as bush campsites. Water and electrical points are on the lawned sites.
Cosy, basic camp Chalets with beds & linen only- no self-catering equipment available in these except a kettle. These units make use of the central open ablution facility.
Perhaps you would prefer to relax in our luxurious Woodlands Cottage or one of our fully equipped Riverview Rooms. Both these options are fully set up for all the needs of the traveller.
Make use of the lovely sparkling swimming pool to refresh you after a long journey. Also available for your convenience are pre-cooked frozen meals, braai packs, wood, ice, refreshments and other basic food commodities. Breakfast packs are available for early travellers on request.
A large variety of Botswana bird species can be viewed. Experience the call of the migrant woodlands kingfisher who nests here annually arriving in November and departing again in April. Animals which are frequently sighted or heard are kudu, impala, bush buck, duiker, steenbok, jackal and monkeys. Lovely walks along the river bank. The Selolwe Ruins,a National Monument, are within walking distance.
