Small game reserve, with lots of zebra and ostrich and other small animal. We had a nice time. There is a small picnic area also. Good thing you can take your own car inside. If you have children with you, they will love it.

I was just a few days in Gaborone and wanted to go on a short game drive. I decided to just rent a taxi for a few hours ($10 per hour all inclusive should be fair), and got driven around in this very small, yet...More
