Even though we were the only guests during low season we received great attention. Service staff was very friendly, tents were clean and food was very good. We booked full Day Game Drive and Mokoro Trip with them. Communication and booking prior to arrival worked well.

Myself and another traveler left this place in the middle of our stay to go elsewhere. The owners of the Mochaba and Boteti met with us to apologize for some of the issues we experienced...we appreciated that; but suffice to say that if you are a single female, don't stay here. Again, this place has no wifi, no available drinking water unless you purchase it and the food, especially what they give you to take on game drives leaves a lot to be desired.

Dear BJA213, Thanks for your feedback, which is much appreciated. To address some of your concerns, which we had discussed in person, the water at Mochaba Crossing Lodge is borehole water, and is safe to drink, but tastes a little salty. For this reason, we have found that most guests prefer bottled water, for which there is a charge. The package that you had booked does exclude all drinks, as you were aware. As regards wifi, this is not something we offer at our camps, and we are sorry that you were not made aware of this at the time of your booking. As a company, Bush Ways takes any situation where a guest feels uncomfortable very seriously, which is why we met with you before you departed Botswana. We assured you then that the matter would be taken care of with the utmost urgency. We are sorry that you felt this was not sufficient, and have felt it necessary to post this report, without further contact with either your agent or us directly. We would hope that you continue to speak out where you feel that a situation is not comfortable as a single woman traveller, so that these issues can be recognised and dealt with at the time. Best regards, Bush Ways management

We stayed three nights in a luxury en suite tent. Everything the stay do here really makes you feel like a VIP. The pool and bar are great. Skizo is possibly the best chef who has ever cooked for me, that guy is a magician! Barati, the manager, is a consummate professional who made us feel welcome and gave us Tswana lessons even though we are bad students. Highly recommend. The mokoro trip was great, my wife's favourite activity of our whole Botswana trip. Tutu and Doctor were excellent guides and we saw a huge bull elephant and twenty four giraffes!

Dear AgDirt, thank you so much for your wonderful words. It is so good to know that you had a fantastic time here at Mochaba Crossing. We hope you are still practising your Setswana so that you can order your next meal here with us in the local language... :) It is also great to hear that you had such an amazing day trip on the mokoro and you enjoyed our wildlife to the fullest. We hope you are safe and healthy and that we can welcome you back one day with us. Sincerely, the entire Mochaba Crossing team

Mochaba Crossing needs some work on all aspects other than location. Great location and nice grounds. And nice physical plant; poorly maintained. I stayed there in February this year for 10 days traveling alone, and 3 days in April this year with my wife and 3 friends, my wife was there for 3 days in March this year. A good sample and we really wish it had worked but...Service is poor at dining. Staff is very nice and they try but they have no guidance and little training. They would be great in a good lodge with some support. Food is poor. Main area is poorly maintained, their internet reservation service is non- existent, front desk email and phone is often down. Only way to communicate some of the time is for me to call from US and send friends in Maun by in person to see front desk. Crazy. Breakfast served late and not on time. Main area men's and women's bathroom in main area do not really work. No soap, no towels. this has been the case for 3 months. Some rooms have only one key so if you leave for the day with your key, there is no way to access your room for service. Laundry service is good. Credit card reader was out when we were there in April so we had to arrange for payment when we passed thru Maun after trip into Delta.

I think it will make you happy to hear that we (Bush Ways Lodges) took over the management of Mochaba Crossing this year in May.

Arrived wet and bedraggled having aborted our plans to camp in Moremi. 8 of us turned up and we were given help to dry our wet things, electric for our fridges, and lovely rooms. As the lodge was quiet we stayed 2 nights, they offered us a discount for the second night. As we had turned up with no booking the food available was limited, however they cooked our eggs for breakfast. The second night there were lots of choices. One of vehicles had caught fire, the staff were helpful with calls to help us sort the problem
