About Us

Modumela is an RCI Silver Crown Resort and has been awarded a 2-star grading by the Botswana Tourism Organisation.

It is located approximately 68km from Francistown, along the main road to Bulawayo (Zimbabwe), in the north-east district of Botswana.

PLEASE NOTE: Modumela is located in a low-risk malaria area - however, if you are planning on travelling extensively throughout Botswana, please ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions.

Modumela Ruins

A small ruin site - relating to the Great Zimbabwe Tribes, has been found on the property. An archaeologist visited us and provided us with more information. The ruins, which date back to the 14th century, are now listed as a national heritage site. To preserve this site, kindly be advised that no unaccompanied visits are permitted. More interesting information is still to come - we will keep you posted.


We routinely strive to reclaim the natural flora in areas of the property, which were once over-grazed as part of a cattle ranch. Our active and ongoing non-indigenous bush clearing program aims to bring the land back to its original ecological condition. In time, we hope to be able to reintroduce more animal species, which occurred here in the past. There are two dams, and numerous watering holes have been created on the property, to encourage the wildlife to congregate in and move between these areas - promoting the even use of vegetation.

Animals & Birds

Modumela Lodge offers a great wildlife experience for nature-lovers and is a birders haven. There have been approximately 30 animal species recorded on the Resort - including Impala, Wildebeest, Eland, Hyena, Zebra and more.

Modumela is home to more than 250 recorded bird species. Bird-watching is a significant part of life at Modumela and something we especially enjoy sharing with our guests.
