“Always an excellent stopover in Botswana. Book in advance as it is popular. 3 Bush campsites have been added for larger groups.The huge swimming pool is always sparkling clean, as is the ablution facility. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.” - Mietsie Visser, 2018/10/03

“Although situated some little way off the main road just out of Francistown the site caters for a limited number of campers as well as people wanting bandas. The sites are well grassed over and in shade. The ablution block is of a high standard and the swimming pool of generous proportions.” - David Clack, 2009/02/01
