This backpackers is slightly off the beaten track and an amazing getaway from everything you don't want in the city. The hosts are wonderful, kind and very accommodating. Lizzy was especially a delight loving belly rubs and just loving in general (pitbull). Highly recommended stay over or base to explore Botswana from.
I'm currently enjoying my second stay here at Mokolodi. This is one of my favorite places in this planet and I've been around the block a few times! It's an oasis in the African bush. A place where your soul can sing. The setting is perfect to decompress from the stress of life. It's truly a sanctuary. The staff is fantastic! Their genuine kindness is touching. Everything is perfectly clean and comfortable. The entertainment area is complete with a café and pool table plus arm chairs and... hammock chairs 😍 There's a pool and sauna. The prices are the cheapest I've found and it's quite close to the game reserve. You really can't ask for more!
We stay there for two days. Helpful staff and thanks to Hendik for high tea in the evening. The shared kitchen was clean also the ablution. It was the second stay and when we are again in Gabs we book again.
We camped here for a night while passing through Gaborone. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - super friendly , helpful staff and great facilities. It's a small establishment but certainly has plenty of character. Highly recommended.
Wonderful spot to rest up in Gabs. Helpful owner and staff. Very well maintained and clean facilities. Camping and cabins available. Shared kitchen. Communal braai and fire pit area. Laundry service available. Highly recommend. Thanks Hendrik for the stay!
staff is super helpful and work very hard, they crack jokes and honestly you can have a decent conversation with them. all the facilities are clean and well locked after. will definitely be returning.
What a lovely welcoming place Mokolodi backpackers is Beautiful garden area's,full of birdlife,not to mention the very friendly animals as well. The staff here are warm and very helpful in all aspects,the accomodation's,kitchen and ablutions are always extremely clean,and well stocked A perfect stay,of which I extended. A most highly recommended place to stay if you are passing through Gaborone.
Great location as is easy to reach when travelling up from South Africa (through Lobatshe), saves going through Gaberone especially if getting there late. Service is friendly. Safe parking. Very clean and a number of options for overnight (own camp, prepared tents and cabins). Hendrick is busy with a really cool new reception and social area - look forward to seeing that in full use the next time we stay over. We have stayed over here a number of times in the past and will continue to stayover here in the future.
We had a project in Gaborone and had to go up with a large team from South Africa. The backpackers was perfect and had everything we needed, even supplied milk with the coffee etc. They offered us a good discount for a group bookings and the service was great. Would recommend. Nice and quiet and well maintained.
Not at all what we expected from a Backpackers, I was hesitant at first as I expected a noisy party atmosphere and very basic amenities, boy was I in for a surprise. We stayed in the Executive Rondavel, which is a beautifully appointed unit with an aircon, en-suite bathroom and small kitchen. Everything was spotless, the grounds are lovely and you feel like you are truly in Africa, while still having access to free Wifi. It was quiet and peaceful and just all around perfect.
