  • Make sure to try the Mokolodi Steak here, the source is absolutely worth it. Most important they have ice cold beer on tap and the staff are friendly. After a days work it is nice to dine outside and watch some buck etc while winding down.
  • Good food, friendly and helpful staff. A great day out. The game drive was a little bumpy for my elderly father, but still enjoyable. Best time to view game is in winter, mainly due to supplemental feeding points for rhino, and less vegetation making for better visibility.
  • Short 20 minute drive from Gaborone CBD. Worth a visit. Great staff members. Information filled 2 hour yours.
  • Nice game reserve and within 30 minute drive from the Avani hotel.
  • Superb authentic cultural restaurant with terrific menu. Best food in botswana!
