The Eco-friendly Touch

Thobolo’s Bush Lodge is an initiative of Mike Gunn who wanted to revive the Barangwe pans. The lodge uses state of the art environmental design to minimize its environmental impact. The idea is to give visitors a chance to experience this region, while improving the environment.

Thobolo’s is was built using one of the greenest building methods available in the world today, namely light gauge steel construction. It’s also the first of its kind in Botswana.

This eco-friendly lodge is entirely solar-powered. This system by Sun Trackers has solar panels that follow the sun throughout the day. Of course, with Botswana having an excellent rainy season every year, a backup generator is in place for the overcast days. Locally-sourced timber was used to construct the lodge.

 

Barangwe Pan and Surroundings

Since the revival of the Barangwe Pan, a large number of species have made this pan their home. Here you can spot wild dog, leopard, lion, warthog, impala, roan, sable, kudu, eland, buffalo, and many other small mammals.

 

Thobolo’s Accommodation

All the chalets overlook the pan, each with its own viewing deck, two luxury en-suite bedrooms, and a dining area. There are also BBQ facilities available. All bedrooms have screens and a big overhead fan for comfort. Thobolo’s Campsite overlooks the pans with a newly renovated ablutions, hot showers and a wash-up area. This is perfect for the bush lover that seeks a tranquil, natural surrounding.
