3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


This is a self-catering paradise. How would you like a thatched cottage lighted only by paraffin lanterns on the side of a mountain overseeing nothing but nature? Quiet serenity. Your cottage comes with an outdoor covered cooking area. It is supplied with gas burners, sink, cutting/draining board, table and chairs. Your cottage has comfortable beds, hot water and full bathroom, but no electricity. You do have plenty of paraffin lanterns. You also have your own site and the only sounds you hear are the crickets. Bring your own wood and food, but you can pick that up in the village. This is a great place to take a relaxing break (not far) away from Gaborone. Unfortunately the owner died 3 weeks before I was here, but the staff still carry on. You can also go horse riding over a vast area by day. At night the 2 dogs will come and keep guard. They only charged me a little bit of steak!<br/><br/>Please note: some guidebooks name this idyllic place ‘Country Horse Safaris’. The sign (pictured) actually says ‘Arne’s Horse Safari'.

city camp: best located camping place

Pretty much one of the only cheap places to camp.ideally located in the can camp or rent a caravan.the bathrooms are relatively is situated next to the bull and bush pub and grill, so its convenient if you want to go for a meal, play pool or hang out.

next to the bull and bush, the only campsite in town town.

Grand Palm Hotel: nicest hotel but expensive

5 Star hotel and casino, with a very up-market African feel.Ave room price is about $100 &#43;, good amenities..swimming pool, tennis courts, gym, game drives to Mokolodi game reserve.Definatly not for the backpacker trying to save cash.

Wild animals kept on the grounds(kudu).And you can see a host of birds over the man-made lake...very tranquil.
