Feline Fields by Mantis

A Mantis Eco Lodge Experience



An Exclusive Kalahari Safari

Remember a forgotten part of Botswana; come to Feline Fields by Mantis. Absolutely pristine, even the skies are barren of man-made flight. This vast Kalahari desert is alive with life. African elephants, leopards, gemsbok, brown hyenas and the occasional pack of wild dogs roam freely over the endless semi-desert planes.

There is an ancient soul that ignites this place; it is heard in the rapid syllables of the Ju-Huansi and Kung! Bushmen songs that flame night fires. These wise desert nomads have been here for thousands of years; living as their ancestors did. We are privileged to be able to introduce you to them so you can learn their ways.

The Kalahari Desert is a large semi-arid sandy savannah in Southern Africa extending for 900,000 square kilometres (350,000 sq mi), covering much of Botswana, parts of Namibia, and regions of South Africa. With huge tracts of excellent grazing after good rains, the Kalahari supports more animals and plants than a true desert, such as the Namib Desert to the west. There are small amounts of rainfall and the summer temperature is very high. Feline Fields by Mantis is located North-West of Botswana, between the Okavango Delta and the Namibian border.

To fully appreciate the immense remoteness of Feline Feilds, arriving by helicopter is recommended, with a flight time of 50min from Maun to the Lodge.

The Gumare Airstrip is located 1h10mins from the lodge should guests make use of private air charter in a light aircraft.

Feline Fields by Mantis offers complimentary 3-hour (200km) road transfers from Maun airport in a¬†4×4 ¬†air-conditioned vehicle. A dedicated airport transit lounge is located approximately 250m from Maun Airport, complimentary for guests to enjoy quiet refreshments, comfortable lounge seating with complimentary wifi to connect to whilst awaiting their connecting flight (available from March 2022).
