Food at Nata Lodge is well prepared and wholesome. The setting is amongst indigenous trees and gardens and in the open weather permitting

The food variety was enough to cater taste of all tongues and nationalities. I had ordered couple of things in my 3 attempts and none of them disappointed much. Eating out in open in the mid of green ambiance just added to the flavor.

The food is good however do not order the Beef curry unless you want to get a simple beef stew. It tasted good however lacking on authentic curry spices and flavor.

The steaks and burgers at Nata Lodge were excellent. The steak was perfectly done and was very good quality meat. They will want to offer you a sauce to slather all over it but the steak does not need it unlike many Botswana steaks.

Beautiful place and wonderful friendly staff. The price may seem a little steep compared to other places in the vicinity but it is worth it since the other places are terrible. Thank you for salvaging our holiday!
