Elephant Sands Adventure Lodge

The Story

Elephant Sands Adventure Lodge is situated 50 km north of Nata on a 16000 ha private unfenced conservancy, with many animals freely roaming around. Hunting in Botswana was prohibited in 2014, resulting in the pumping of water being stopped. As a consequence, elephants began occupying water holes and chasing other animals away. Water is crucial in this arid part of the country! Elephant Sands owners, Ben and Marie Moller, dug the first waterhole for elephants at their main lodge in the early 1980s. The couple were later joined by son-in-law Mike and daughter Saskia Toth, who are part of a larger project called the ‘Elephants for Water Trust’, which restores and maintains boreholes to provide water for elephants. This enables the elephants to not only survive in dry periods, but to follow their ancient migratory routes, which alleviates the pressure on the environment.
