Botswana Restaurants


    Who needs a restaurant when you could be cooking in the beautiful outdoors of Botswana? They are blessed with great weather and you can Braai virtually every night. The word Braai (rhymes with ‘cry’) is Afrikaans for ‘barbecue’ or ‘roast’. To me it translates as simply delicious. You also get to burn stuff to make your meal. Most grocery stores...

  • BYO... Food

    On some of these trips, I'm sure food will be provided. But for those of us who are to cheap to have fully-catered forays into the bush, stopping by a local market or grocery will have to suffice.I'd recommend canned foods, since they are sealed. You can always donate the unopened cans to your guide. The downside is that they are heavy and may not...

  • Granny's Kitchen

    This cafe was en route to Meno a Kwena, we stopped off to pick up a sandwich for lunch. Unfortunately, our wait which amounted to approx. 45minutes tried our patients and so we left empty handed. Africa time is one thing but when no sandwiches arrived after this period of time and with us being the only customers, we concluded they had gone to make...

  • Salads and Sandwiches

    Nata Lodge is a lovely stopping off point for lunch. A cool ladies bar area to sit in eating a meal from a vast menu. From typical African carnivorous food to salads and sandwiches are amongst the choice.The setting is relaxing and facilities great.SADLY, ON THE 25TH SEPTEMBER, THE LODGE WAS BURNT DOWN IN A BUSH FIRE. A TRAGEDY INDEED.


    Chicken Lickin has some good combo meals and side dishes. They are famous for their small chicken sandwiches called “Slyders” that you can pick up in multiples. The ladies that work here are friendly and fast. How good is it? Its ok, its fast food fried chicken. They have lots of locations across Botswana and they stay open a bit later than most. I...

  • Best Beef I ever ate

    We grilled every evening.You can taste that cows can move the whole day outside-> meat is very good. beef

  • did i blink and miss where this place...

    flooded, ants and monkeys is what i remember about this place. Its part of a safari camp type arrangement and also the stating point of some Chobe National Park adventures. Turned up here for breakfast and was confronted by the rising waters of the Thebe river, monkeys ransacking the place and ants running amuck amongst the mess the monkeys had...

  • Bush Brunch

    Not really a restuarant. But the camp staff laid on a wonderful brunch out in the bush to end our morning safari. In a trip wher great food is commonplace, the setting of these bush meals makes them outstanding. As an added extra we were given a greeting of a local song and dance by the staff, all under the shade of a huge baobob treePresumably the...

  • Foodhunters

    After we finished our Okavango trip we went to the "town" to find some food. We didn't find anything. The only shop was almost empty. After 30 minutes we found a little tent with bread inside. I don't know why, but I had the feeling somebody put sand in the bread.

  • Eating on Safari

    One of the most wonderful surprises was the high quality of food in the safari camps we visited (Sandibe, Savute and Nxabega). In the first two, dining was communal, although at Sandibe you were served at your seat, while Savute uses a buffet presentation. At Nxabega, you have options -- to romantically sit together at secluded, set apart tables...

  • Sundowners

    Is it a restaurant or is it nightlife.Whatever it comes under having a gin and tonic sundowner out in the Delta is terrific. The guides have their regular spots to stop fior these - usually near a waterhole or river so you can watch and enjoy.

  • Brunch at Camp

    After a morning's game viewing you come back to camp for a brunch like this. Because you are up really early for the first game drive and have been out having a great time you can build up a healthy appetite and need something pretty substantial to keep you going until 4:00pm when you have tea and cakes before the evening drive.Photo courtesy of...

  • Do it yourself!!

    Under African stars, warm fire roaring away. There's nothing better than cooking for yourself and your group out in the bush. Forget Restaurants in Botswana, its far better to self cater. Meat, meat and more meat!

  • Picnic under the sun

    When you travel by truck by the lonely roads of this flat country, a tree by the road side may be a perfect place for a stop and a nice lunch under the tree, on the shade. Although we went in winter (august) the sun was really strong, so all shades were welcome...

  • The bar at the Island Safari Lodge, Maun

    The bar at the Island Safari Lodge in Maun.The atmosphere is great all kind of groups come to the bar preparing for their 'delta-experience'. Other groups have just returned are full of stories. Just a burger with fries.

  • The campfire.

    Survival atmosphere let's see whether a cityslicker is fit to do it.. Bananabread, stews, veggies, fish all done over the fire..

  • We ate at the Chobe Game...

    We ate at the Chobe Game Lodge. Our stay included all meals and they even packed us a big, wonderful breakfast for one of our safaris. They always had plenty of drinks on the game drives for us too. The food was wonderful. Pictured here are the warthogs that grazed outside our rooms and sometimes were on the menu! That's my son in the background

  • In realta' viaggiando in...

    In realta' viaggiando in tenda, non ho potuto frequentare i ristoranti. Mi e' capitato di fare colazione in qualche resort di lusso, dove la colazione e a buffet. C'e' una grande scelta costa poco (questo nel 94) ed e' accessibile a tutti..In reality I travel with a tent, so I wasn't able to frequent the restaurants. Sometimes I went to get...



  • I had a wonderful meal at...

    I had a wonderful meal at Crocodile Camp with two Dutch men that I met while there. You can arrange to have your meals included with your room rate there. When I was out on safari, our camp staff cooked everything over a wood fire. A couple of guests along with one of our safari guides had birthdays that week. The cook made a chocolate cake right...
