As we arrived at the airport, I noticed I had forgot to keep their address and fone number. After a kind help of the people in charge of the information booth (at the airport), I finally could call the hostess and she came to pick us up within 10 minutes. As she took us to the guesthouse, she showed us some interesting spots of the city. She was very kind and helpful. We stayed at a very large and well equiped chalet. All in all, considering we were only staying one day before and another after our trip to Kgalagadi, our time here was pretty good.

As the guests book in, fish inquisitively pop up for greetings. Immediately you feel at home.
