Activities

There’s plenty to keep you entertained at the backpackers and in the surrounding area.

If you just want to relax at the backpackers then we have a swimming pool, dart board, pool table, PC with internet and plenty of braai places.

Or you can sit on your veranda in our shady garden, catch up on Facebook and read a good book!

Botswana’s bustling capital city, Gaborone, contains a number of cultural attractions including a fascinating National Museum, a lively street market and a wide range of restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

Mokolodi Game Reserve is a perfect introduction to Botswana’s rich and varied wildlife.

We can arrange visits including game drives, rhino tracking, and sundowners overlooking the beautiful scenery. It’s a 15-20 minute walk from the backpackers.

We also give free advice on planning onwards travel in Botswana (e.g. Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi Pans, Kalahari Desert) and surrounding countries (e.g. Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe).
