A most fortunate Tour was had on a pleasant April afternoon. The driver and guide was first class and was able to spot various animals long before the tourists. We saw zebras, ostriches, impala and best of all a giraffe (closeup). All in all a...More

We were in Gaborone on a business trip and wanted to see some wildlife; a taxi to Mokolodi was about 45 minutes. The power had been out at Mokolodi for a couple of days because of storms and so our reservation confirmation hadn't been received,...More

Mokolodi Game Reserve is conveniently close to airport - 30 min outside of traffic. The game rangers are excellent and the views from the chalets are fantastic. It's probably better for a family getaway than a couples getaway as many activities require minimum 4-6 people...More

We were staying at Mokoldi house --separate review--this is just up the road and a good find. Great park--good game drives--Excellent restaurant which gives you the best despite the constant power cuts. A 4 wheel drive is advisable but not essential.

we spent one night in a cottage at the reserve and found it comfortable and clean. unfortunately the road is very rocky and even with a 4x4 on needs to travel carefully. the cottages are 3,4km from the restaurant which I think is too far.
