Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, Botswana
Leroo La Tau is situated on the western bank of the Boteti River, northwest of Khumaga Village and about 87 miles southeast of Maun.
The eastern bank of the Boteti forms the boundary of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, which stretches away from the riverbank towards its interior of scrubland and mineral-rich grasslands.
Leroo La Tau’s chalets are built on cliffs over 30 feet above this changing riparian environment, offering a vantage point that ensures unsurpassed views of the river and the Makgadikgadi Pans to the east.Download Fact Sheet
