small camp area but the shower and toilet facilities and the kitchen are forever clean and neat so it was worth every penny. It ducked that there isn't any board to show where the backpackers is, not even at the gate.

What a great place. The management is really fantastic. We were a large group of people and were broke after our long holiday but we managed to strike a deal to use some of their unused rooms at a great price. The kitchen is fantastic and has everything you could need. The staff even prepared us each a warm water... More

We stopped at Mokolodi after a long drive from Cape Town and it was fantastic. The staff were excellent and the rooms, while slightly small for 4, were excellent. The little touches like a hot water bottle in your bed on a cold night and the fire braziers to sit around made it even better.

The Backpackers close to Mokolodi is a stunner. The new annex next door is certainly the best place around town. Pinky and Samantha look after their gests in an exceptionally cordial manner. I love it.

My son and I stayed at Mokolodi Backpackers for 3 nights. I can not say enough things about this place. Everything, all the furnishing, the grounds, everything is nicely maintained. It is a 20 minute walk down the road to the Mokolodi Game Reserve, which is great for AM or PM game drives. The Reserve also has a snack bar... More

We were very fortunate to find this place online. We had initially booked two nights but loved it there so much that we ended up staying 5 nights. Mokolodi is about 13kms south of Gaborone. It has a quiet, relaxed, welcoming vibe and the facilities are great, including a braai area and a lovely pool. There are also animals (two... More

Stayed here during my overland trip across Africa. A great hostel with very friendly staff. Hendrik, the owner, has a very fastidious eye for cleanliness and takes great pride in keeping the place to the highest standard. The buses run quite often just 5 minutes walk from the hostel and take you to the centre of Gaborone just 10 minutes... More
