About Waterside Cottages

Retreat to the tranquillity of the banks of the Taung River only a 7 minute drive from Gaborone City, where you can enjoy, nestled amongst unspoilt bush, luxury thatched cottages.

Both spacious cottages feature a king-size bed and crisp white linen or twin beds can be arranged upon request, en-suite bathroom with a large shower, basin, toilet and complimentary toiletries, full digital satellite TV bouquet, Free Wi-Fi and a laundry service. Although we are not a self-catering establishment we do provide an in-cottage continental breakfast which can be enjoyed at your own leisure on your own private patio, while taking advantage of your beautiful surroundings. Both cottages are also equipped with a microwave, small fridge, kettle, crockery and cutlery and braai facilities are available at the water's edge.

We have a local Mokolodi Restaurant, only a 5 minute drive from the cottages, offers outstanding meals featuring the very best of Botwana's renowned beef among many other delicious dishes. In the city a varied selection of both restaurants and bars are also available for you to choose from.

The nearby Mokolodi Nature Reserve offers Game Drives and for the shopaholics amongst us Game City Shopping Centre featuring many of the commonly know franchises is also very close by.

Nothing is perfect but this place comes much closer than most. There was no power on the second day due to local works but it still did not spoil our stay. The hosts think of everything to ensure you have a great experience.
