I spent a weekend away in Mokolodi. This is perfect place to have a break from noisy city. The rooms are comfortable, kitchen well equipped, it's clean and safe. Gaborone is easy accessible and if you you need a bit of adrenaline you can walk to the nearby, good restaurant at Mokolodi Reserve, The owners are very helpful.

Room Tip: I had a single room which is in the same building as the owners flat thus making it a bit noisy at t...

Our stay here was amazing. The staff were great and were always very kind to us. We stayed in tents in the winter months so they helped us stay warm as possible with extra blankets and water balloon heaters. There is a great kitchen and hot showers. Access to wifi which is the fastest I've experienced in my 2 months in Africa. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

I´m from Brazilian and stayed at Mokolodi Backapackers on sept 2014. The place is very confortable, clean, safe. Speciall thanks for the owner, who is very kind with his guests. It´s walking distance (if you like to walk) from Mokolodi Park. This is one of the best backpackers youth hostel I´ve ever seen on my life. You stay have an option to rent nice bangaloos, if you are not a backpacker.

What a great find and wonderful to see such a well run business. We stayed in one of the chalets which were comfortable, clean and good value for money. Hendrick the owner was genuinely interested in our 5 month trip and was eager to help and ensure that we had a comfortable stay.

There is everything that a traveler needs here, WiFi, kitchen, laundry and of course a very nice pool. Could not fault it, stay if you are ever in Gabs.

A BIG thank to Sam, Albert and Hendrik of the Mokolodi Backpackers! I spend another week there on my way to Zimbabwe and without a doubt it is one of the best backpackers to stay at! It is an oasis in the middle of the desert! Peaceful, quiet and it restores the soul! It is clean, the staff is helpful and the owner delightful! Free Wifi, cold beer and a fabulously clean pool! Could stay forever, and watch out Hendrik, one day I may come and NOT leave! Thank you again for making my stay so incredibly pleasurable! I WILL be back!!
