Very friendly staff, wonderful evening outdoor dinner by the lake - but the drive around the reserve was disappointing. Not many animals to see on this occasion

Nice place good for a safari feel lunch/dinner within minutes of the city and if you feel like you have had too much to drink you can enjoy a restful sleep at the chalets. game drive and dinner are my favorite with my kids and the ice-cream is home-made !!!

Love this place very much! So close to Gaborone, yet a million miles away! Giraffes, Monkeys and so many other beautiful animals! I love the Sunsets so much here, they are more spectacular in Botswana!

The night rides is actually fantastic. Especially with a big group. You are lucky if you will get to see all the wild animals.The chalets are also very nice to stay.That is called the bush life.Vistors must see.
