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.
3rd visit to Mokolodi Backpackers as enjoyable and relaxing as ever. Staff are very friendly; small pool good for the little kids; pig and dog are very companionable. Easy drive from Gaborone. Plenty of shade. Amazing new thatched mega structure for use by all.
