The place is very neat and relaxation mood. Even though it was very hot we enjoyed our stay nice pool to cool down and lots of trees for shade. The facilities (kitchen and ablution block) the best ever. Always clean and available for use.

27 December 2014

A friendly hotel just a few minutes away from the nature reserve. We were greeted by a peacock, chickens, dogs, cats and a big pig. The owner was kind and friendly. They had rich birds life. We woke up to the birds singing. It was great to chill out in the swimming pool in the afternoon.

22 December 2014

Stunning place. So clean, safe, accommodating, personal, friendly and affordable. This was never our idea of a backpackers. Mokolodi sets a new trend.

19 December 2014

Ek sal beslis Mokolodi Backpackers aanbeveel. Die kamers, kombuisie en badkamers was netjies en skoon. Die personeel baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die atmosfeer is baie huislik met die viervoetiges in die kamp wat lui-lui saam kuier. 'n Besondere GROOT DANK aan die skoonmaak-personeel en bestuur wat my dogter se kamera, wat agtergebly het, gevind het en vir ons gekoerier het. Sal met ons volgende besoek aan Gaborone definitief weer by Mokolodi tuis gaan.

03 December 2014

I liked it very much, once the big groups were gone. It was a very peaceful and chill out location, although I would suggest self-drivers. Getting away with taxi can be (compared to local transport or hiking) quite costly, I dont understand why it is such a huge difference between hiking and local busses and taxi. Getting with a local bus from gabs to Francistown is cheaper than from Mokolodi lodge to gabs bus terminal. Makes me wonder. But that has nothing to do with the lodge itself. Book your stay after Mokolodi ahead to because at Mokolodi internet could be down, when in need. Since I now these little facts now, I would definitely consider going there again.
