Shakawe River Lodge is situated approximately 1300km North of Botswana's capital Gaborone in the Pan-Handle region of the Okavango Delta, 10km south of the small village of Shakawe in North Western Botswana. The world famous safari town of Maun is 380km to the South East.

Accessible by tarred road from the North and South, Shakawe River Lodge is both an ideal destination in itself as well as an ideal stopover for visitors travelling through the Northern parts of Botswana/Southern Africa. The Mohembo border post to Namibia is a mere 20km to the North of the lodge.

There is an airport in Shakawe itself, with a 1,4km tarred runway. Chartered flights from Maun to Shakawe can be arranged 
on request.

For private aircraft, Customs and Immigration clearance is available at Shakawe Airport, by prior arrangement.
