Woodlands Stop Over & Lodge is situated on the site of the original “Hunters’ Road” previously travelled by hunters, naturalists, explorers and missionaries on their way to the Victoria Falls in the 18th Century. 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. 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.
