self-catering (self contained) within a nature reserve just 12 km from Gaborone

Mokolodi Nature Reserve offers self-catering (self-contained) accommodation in the Mokolodi Nature Reserve near Gaborone, Botswana. There are five secluded chalets, situated on a rocky hill overlooking a waterhole. Guests at the Mokolodi Lodge can escape from the hustle and bustle from city life and spend their days observing the fascinating behaviour of the wildlife.

At Mokolodi Lodge, you will not even realise that there are chalets other than your own. Each self-catering (self-contained) chalet is fully equipped, with solar power, flush toilets, cooker and fridge. The chalets each have a thatched roof, a natural way of ensuring a cool stay in summer and a cosy holiday in winter.

The Mokolodi Lodge also provides camping facilities. The picturesque name of Hidden Valley Campsite says it all. You will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the deep bush of the Mokolodi Nature Reserve without ever seeing your neighbours. Each camping site has a flush toilet, kitchen sink and you can even have the unique experience of showering beneath the stars! Three of the 8 camping sites at Mokolodi have their own braai facilities.

The Mokolodi Nature Reserve offers a host of activities, guaranteeing that you will depart knowing much more about wildlife. The Reserve is home to Botswana’s only Wild Cheetah Transit Station. This is a facility where “problem cheetahs” are housed before being relocated to other areas. Typically, a problem animal would be one that hunts cattle on farms.

In addition to the cheetahs, four orphaned elephants are also being raised here, in collaboration with the Serendib Elephant Orphanage. Through the efforts of the Mokolodi Nature Reserve and its White Rhino Relocation Program, the first white rhino was reintroduced in the Okavango area.

The Mokolodi Nature Reserve also has a reptile park, wildlife rehabilitation centre, crocodile pond, permaculture garden and animal sanctuary. Visitors can learn more about the many plant species, 50 species of large mammals and 300 species of birds on a two hour tour accompanied by a professional guide. You can stroke Mokolodi’s resident tame cheetah (and have your picture taken to treasure forever) or join a rhino-tracking drive or cheetah-sighting drive under the guidance of an expert tracker and guide before enjoying a bush picnic. Or, if you prefer, enjoy a sundowner game drive followed by a dinner in the form of a sumptuous bush braai.
