The Lodge at Feline Fields is also situated a short distance from the ancient Gcwihaba Caves, one of the most remote and wild destinations in all of Botswana. Marjan Blom, Chairperson and Director of Feline Fields, said: “It had long been a dream for my husband Raphael and I to help actively shape the future of conservation. We fell in love with Botswana, its incredible beauty and warm people. It seemed only natural to establish the Feline Fields Trust and resulting Lodge to support our local community and introduce guests to conservation in action.” The Lodge at Feline Fields Set in an untouched and private part of Africa, the intimate lodge employs low volume, low impact ecotourism to support the Feline Fields Trust. This non-profit organisation facilitates a sound approach to sustainable conservation through leadership development and education of rural children in Botswana. A stay at The Lodge at Feline Fields starts from $750 (£530) per person, per night. This includes return road transfers, all meals and drinks (excluding champagne and French wines), all game drives, organised fly camps to the Gcwihaba Caves, laundry service, VAT and a €30 donation to the Feline Fields Trust. An additional child sharing starts from $200 per person per night. Website: www.felinefields.com
