Having arrived after dark after a stressful drive we were "greeted" with little warmth, perhaps the fact that the staff could hardly speak English didn't help. We stayed in the chalets which were spacious but didn't have windows only drop down canvas blinds and shared ablution facilities which were rubbish and cold. One of our group also had to endure a cold shower early the next morning. The chalets are supposed to be "self catering" which is very optimistic as there was only a kettle in the room. One of the staff did bring us a microwave to share in order to heat up their frozen, tasteless, overpriced meals which we had bought at reception- this was done in desperation as we were reluctant to drive at night to Francistown which was 15km away. Would recommend that you give this stopover a skip unless you are wanting to be fleeced!!
