Another great spot in Kasane, and great food. The best bream (fish), I've ever eaten. We also enjoyed a lovely boat cruise, it comes highly recommended!!

We arrived at Kasane airport after a very long trip (36hours) to be welcomed by Rems. The smile on his face and the enthousiasm he had made us relax right away and our honeymoon started right then and there! Arriving at the Old House was...like coming home. Great room, very clean, amazing bar, superfriendly people and an amazingly fresh and nice breakfast. Highlight was our Rivercruise with Rems! Due to Covid we had to river to ourselfs and we spent 3hours looking (and finding) for animals. Topping it off with an amazing sunset! Thumbs up for the Old House!More

Our group of seven were staying in Kasane for three days and The Old House was recommended for breakfast (which they serve all day), lunch and dinner. We went twice for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good service, excellent food, especially their pizza! Very...reasonable prices.More

We stayed just down the road the Old House. Wish we had been residents in their lovely chalets. The staff are lovely, the food is good and reasonably priced but most important of all - it works!! Botswana must have a really good PR company...working for the government because, believe me, it is so not what is advertised. The Old House gave us a clean retreat from the dreadful accommodation we had to stay in. See separate review for Water Lily Lodge.More

We ate here at the recommendation of a local business owner and it was divine. The steak was a particular favourite of my husbands and everything was so very reasonably priced! When paying l would recommend using cash as the wifi signal is not very...good and therefore the card machine may not always operate. We had this experience on our first dinner but fortunately had enough cash on us. Please be aware!More

The Old House is a good alternative for those who want to eat out of the lodges. They have a nice terrace, partially covered with nice views to Chobe River. Staff is friendly and helpfully, the food was delicious and the rates are moderate. We...enjoyed our dinner there. It’s recommendable not to walk back to the lodges in the night unless they is in the close vicinity, staff are happy to organize a taxi.More

The Old House in Kasane is good for dinners. Good food. Avoid going there for lunch as the restaurant is like a furnace. Open on the sides but no fans to cool down. We were miserably hot. Do try the gin and cucumber cocktail. It...was heavenly.More
