  • The most beautiful Nature Reserve close to town i have ever seen in my life! Great people working there taking care of animals and birds! Always in my heart you all keep up the great work you are doing with so much love!
  • Lovely campsite in Gaborone but make sure you have an SUV or 4r4 to get to the campsite. The campsites have no power. But have bathrooms and shower however you need to make a fire to heat up the water. Staff is very helpful and great restaurant (a bit pricey)
  • A very lovely Nature Reserve situated just outside of Gabarone. There is a tasty bar and restaurant on site, and plenty of activities offered for our entertainment. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed my visit.
  • Absolutely amazing game reserve - first trip in the summer we got to see cheetahs, water buffalo, hippos and warthogs and this time - giraffe, ostriches, gemsbok and kudu! And it's 15 minutes from the city! Also has a great restaurant and a picnic place close to the dam within the reserve.
  • Nature at it's best... best place to be and if you have never been there please visit
