If you find yourself in Gaborone, I would definitely recommend a visit to Mokolodi. Situated just outside town the setting is lovely with the local wildlife wandering close the restaurant. Restaurant looks stunning with high-eved thatch which adds to the feel of the place. Menu provides choice but does lack the wow-factor the place deserves.

That said all 6 diners in my group enjoyed the food and the steaks in particular lived up to expectation... Service was efficient and attentive.

Go back? definitely.

This restaurant has some of the most amazing food I have ever tasted, offering a wide selection to cater for any taste. The food is excellent value for money and the management will make you feel at home! You could spend all day sitting outside listening to the excellent music tastes of the owners while drinking a cocktail and watching the sunset. I particularly enjoyed the special and unique experience of watching the local wildlife while I ate

a unique place where not only the food is great but where you can enjoy seeing game coming to drink at the waterhole, a steak tasts better when you have a view of a white rhino accompanying it

Since the service was friendly and nice, I am thinking of going back to re-evaluate the food. But my over-all experience at this restaurant was average. Went to visit this restaurant/nature reserve with friends and we all had a fair review. Nothing really wow-ed us. And there is only one toilet.

It feels remote and lost in the African bush, when in truth it's only about 5 minutes drive from Gaberone. The open-side hut is an architectural beauty (what a home it would make!) and with wildlife sometimes visible, you're certainly not going to experience a first-world meal in such a location very often.
