Great experience the tour guide was very knowledgeable and our group very humorous.

Half way we enjoyed a cold drink and a snack and looked over the dam and we spotted a hippo in the distance.
I have been here several times before and I always love it. Today I came for a team meeting and spent the better part of the day. Started with a team discussion session on the hill conference room. The view from up here is magnificent with the Gaborone Dam clearly visible. We then had lunch by the cool lake before touring the snake sanctuary. What an extraordinary experience!
