#3 of 14 Specialty lodging in Ghanzi
Grassland Bushman Lodge is located northeast of Ghanzi about 80Km. Because of our unique location, immense land size, and proper management, you are likely to see more Kalahari game at Grassland Safaris than any other safari outfitter.For a real awesome cultural experience with the San (Bushman) Grassland Bushman Lodge is a must! There is a San village very close to Grassland lodge with very warm friendly Bushmen that are eager to show guests their survival skills! The Lodge is also running a very good predator project, with lions, leopards and wild dogs.At Grassland Bushman Lodge you will be amazed by the comfortable chalets, dining facilities, and hospitable staff. Grassland has eight extremely well furnished chalets, each with their own en-suite bathrooms, beds, closets, and dresser amenities. Each facility has constant hot water and your laundry is done daily at no extra cost.Our meals are extraordinary, well prepared, and a far cry above most other safari outfits. We provide 3 meals a day, snacks, mid-day tea and dessert, cold drinks, wine, and a fully stocked bar for evening nightcapsAnother unique aspect of our camp is our large swimming pool. Guests thoroughly enjoy taking a soothing swim after a long day of game drives and cultural walks.Likewise, guests often enjoy sitting by the bricked fire pit and watch as hundreds of animals come in at dusk to feed by the large illuminated water pan a mere 50 yards away.

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.

After driving 90 minutes through the sand, the last thing you expect is a luxury type lodge. Not what the name suggests, a grass thatched contraption of an abode, but real solid buildings, with all amenities. The location is amazing next to a water hole, where you see dozens of animals even under a starry sky from the fire place. There is a small sanctuary for wild dogs, lions and leopards. . While watching these animals is impressive in many ways, the animal's review on trip advisor would probably be less favourable.

Pampered service, tribal Bushman heritage, 4 star accommodations and raw driving safari adventure deep, DEEP in the Kalahari bush. This unique jewel of an intimate lodge is owned and managed by a warm Botswanan ranching family who are deeply committed to sustainable conservation of the wildlife, cultures and lands of the Kalahari. Complicated is the relationship between rancher, predator, migratory animals and traditional lifestyles. Grassland's immense private reserve is committed to rethinking the balance and efforts that citizens can make toward a sustainable legacy. The experience was intimate and comfortable like a fine boutique hotel but so remote that I could never find my way back to a black top. We did not hear a plane nor see another group of people for the entire 3 night stay. Paula and Pierre, the live on site managers, lead a gracious and attentive staff that were present and eager to serve all our needs and wishes.

What a beautiful place. Perfect as a stopover between Maun and the south or to freshen up when coming from Central Kalahari. We stayed at the campsite which was ‘in the bush’ but was equipped with everything you need! If you choose for the lodge you’ll have an equally great experience. The warm welcome from Pierre and staff makes you feel home from the first minute. It is very interesting to see how they work with so much integrity on the farm. When going here make sure to book for more than one night to get the full experience! Whether you like to go on a night drive, San experience or just relax at the pool and view all the animals at the waterhole, I’m sure you won’t regret going here!

Been here for (unfortunately only) one night, just some days after Kayla and DeJan took over the management of the lodge. It was absolutely fabulous. The lodge itself and the hospitality of them made each of the 15 (!) gates worth while. It was like a stay at good friends. The houses are nice and cosy, the lodge is well equipped, the stargazing at the open fire and DeJan's Gin-Tonics are just awesome. Highly recommended- plan for more than one night if possible.
