Black Pools

1 Hour away
The Moremi Game Reserve has recently opened some new roads. These roads leads to the Black Pools and Xini Lagoon. The area is very different than what we have currently: big vast open grasslands, and of course the amazing black pools itself. It is a place of high abundance and big numbers and a definite hotspot for Cheetahs and other predators. It is reached by crossing the Reserve all the way till the South gate and some further driving. To reach the specific location one has to drive for about 2 hrs and 20 min. We are all (the ones lucky enough to have explored it) blown away by the beauty of the Black Pools and were thinking that it could be an excellent day activity, especially for our 3 nighters. Here is what can be provided: Wake up: 6 00 Breakfast: 6 30 Departure: 7 00 First 2 hours will be used to cover some grounds and to reach the area. arrival around 9 00 discovery and exploration Cold brunch @ 12 00 / 12 30 (setup by the guide at one of the picnic spot on location) menu to be drawn up but wraps, salads, sandwiches are considered. Also the setup would also be according to our standards. Return at the lodge around 15 30 The rest of the day would be at leisure and for those who would like to do something we could organize a "sunset drive" leaving at 17 00 from the lodge. The drive would be axed toward enjoying the sunset and the sundowner would be setup in a very pretty yet close location from the lodge where the light and scenery are just perfect.

Guests will also get an opportunity to view and purchase the many crafts and curio’s these skilled individuals have made.
