Hidden along the Southern boundary of the Okavango Delta, Omogolo’s 1600 hectares offer pristine bush and many species of birds and wildlife. It is our mission to create an increase of habitat for Botswana’s wildlife, and we do this by providing constant water at the natural pans that are in front of each lodge.

Our lodges are wide-spread, very private and comfortable self-catering holiday homes, with all-day staff on call. Here you can enjoy Botswana’s nature at its best, overlooking your ‚own‘ waterhole, in all tranquillity, undisturbed by other guests.

As owners, we are passionate about this wilderness area and have decided to become part in preserving it. We love sharing this with you and hope you will enjoy the beauty of this land as much as we do!

Why the name "Omogolo"?

Here is the story...

When the founders of Omogolo Hideaways (then Omogolo Bush Lodges), Bruce and Yvonne, started to build a home in the bush for themselves, they were surrounded by rather unrelaxed elephant bulls that came out here to find alternative water sources to the close by Okavango Delta not expecting human beings. Realizing that those humans did not come to harm them, those elephants started visiting the two without strain and anxiety. One old, giant bull in particular. Bruce and Yvonne decided to dedicate the piece of land to this old bull and named him and the land by the name of the Setswana term for paying respect to an elderly man: Omogolo

You see him (on the right) shown on this photograph accompanied by his young friend.
