Welcome to Drotskys Cabins
In the North-Western corner of Botswana, situated on the banks of the Okavango River, in the panhandle of the Delta, you will find the lush green lawns and tall, shady indigenous trees, a paradise called Drotsky’s Cabins.
Thirty years ago, Jan and Eileen Drotsky put their roots down here, and today still own and manage the Cabins, one of the first lodges in Botswana. At Drotsky’s you will receive a warm welcome, enjoy personalised attention, and get local knowledge from owners and staff alike on the nature and communities in the region.
The area is a birding and fishing paradise. Drotsky’s is the ideal stop over for tourists en route from or to Namibia and a wonderful place to relax for a few days while enjoying a boat cruise on the Okavango River or visit the nearby World Heritage Site of Tsodilo Hills and Mahangu National Park.
The 10 luxury cabins as well as the restaurant area at Drotsky's Cabins have been built on stilts, so if the annual floods occur, the lodge could be surrounded by water. The cabins are set amongst indigenous thorn trees.
Each cabin is en-suite and is equipped with air-conditioner, satellite television and double bed. Only two of the original six A-frame chalets overlooking the wide Okavango River are still in use. These chalets are simple, clean and comfortable, and exude the charm of years gone by.
They are the only two chalets at the lodge where children under 12 years can share with their parents as they have a second floor deck with 2 extra single beds.
The 20 campsites are situated behind the old chalets under a huge canopy of trees offering welcome shade. They are very large and provide the privacy which you would expect in Africa.
The ablutions are clean and located close to the campsites. Free firewood and electricity are provided. Wi-Fi is available at the bar and restaurant.
Bird life is abundant at Drotsky’s, and the staff will be quick to point out their local specials such as the Brown Firefinch and White-backed Night Heron or the haunting call of Pel’s Fishing Owl. A boat cruise from Drotsky’s is the perfect way to witness the feeding frenzy of the Barbel Run, taking place from August to October each year.
