("Thanks" in Setswana) What a lovely alternative, just 14km down the road by Lobatse combi from the yawn of Gaborone. (Tell the combi driver "Mokolodi 2") Cross the road & turn right at the sign: a dawdle, even in the heat. Back to scrub nature. You will be welcomed by

An amazing place. Very clean and well organized. Enjoyed because I was walking distance from nature reserve. Keep improving. But overall I was impressed. I feel you must make an effort to have a lounge area put up as well.
