“Clean but Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

The chalets are situated 7 miles from Francistown and off the main road north to Kasane.
It is situated too close to Kasane and with the current road condition most people travelling from Kasane would be better to push on to Palapye. The chalets are clean and adequate but really only suited for self-caters. If you are travelling in summer note that there are no air conditioners as it can be very hot and dusty.

We are regular visitors to Woodlands on our travels between South Africa and Zambia and have never been dissapointed at Woodlands.

The staff are friendly, the pool a blessing, and the ready made meals and braaipacks a treat for those in a rush and dont feel like unpacking.

The campsite is clean, as are the ablutions, whilst the riverside villas are our preferred choice for a 1 night stop.

The only thing missing is a supply of ice.

Don't know what I expected with the name but it exceeded our expectations. this is reached on a dirt road off the main North Road.We stayed here twice, once going North and then on the way back South. This is a very well run operation, we stayed in the river side cottages, which have everything you could possibly need, comfortable and peaceful. How nice to sit on the stoep with all the abundant birdlife and still cool of the evening. we were visited by monkeys during the night and early morning so vigilance is needed to stop them coming in, although the nightguards Len and Bafeke (I think were their names) were around to keep an eye on things, so they had to be content with the farm's grapevines. This also has a campsite with good facilities. overall good standards, great value for money, and can thoroughly recommend it

Room Tip: I would try to book a cottage either in the middle of the row on on the furthest end from where you...
