Deception Valley Lodge Reviews
“Can’t say enough about every aspect of our stay: the sere natural beauty and soul of the Kalahari, superbly decorated and comfortable individual suites, wonderful food,delightful staff who made us feel more like guests than clients. Most of all,Jako, the host/owner/guide, had impressive and extensive knowledge about animals, history,and just about everything else!” – Marilyn N
“A privately owned lodge that offers everything, great game drives with expert trackers and guides, amazing food, friendly staff and well decorated rooms. We enjoyed three nights with two game drives each day and a walking safari with two of the local Naru bushmen, it was certainly a highlight!” – Suzanne G
“This lodge is another top quality establishment. The owners have created this into a definite place to visit for at least 3 days. We have to compliment Anuschka, the chef, on the food. This is in line with any top class restaurant, and you are in the middle of Botswana, very far from a supply chain. The rooms are 5-star, the service is highly professional, the game drives guarantees to be very special.” – Alex L
