We had the opportunity to stay here as part of our G-Adventures tour. I was blown away by this experience because I am used to camping and this for me was like glamping. There were on-site facilities and cots in our hut with mosquito nets! They really took great care of us here and the San Bushman walk and dance...

We were a little shocked when we saw the huts we would be sleeping in, especially the simple metal beds with dire looking mattresses and the mosquito nets over them. Very simple ablution blocks. We had a traditional meal cooked for us by the staff consisting of pap, beef stew and a spinach-type dish. We didn't have Botswana Pula yet...

Stayed here as part of a Nomad Overland Tour - presumably you don't have a choice of other accommodation if you are part of such a tour. The accommodation at Ghanzi Trail Blazers is mediocre. The chalet was very hot in late November but no aircon or fan. We opened all of the windows which had mosquito screens that were...

About 8km off the main road outside Ghanzi. The facilities comprise of a camping ground and fairly basic accommodation. There are decent toilets and shower blocks. If you are camping for an extra 100 Pula per night you can stay in one of the straw huts. These have a concrete floor and basic beds. There are mossie nets, but they...

The hut was very basic, with two camp cots (with terrible mattresses) but good mosquito nets. (Not that you really need them in the desert!) There was even electric lighting. As a way to experience some of the way the San Bushmen live, it's unique. Absolutely do the bushmen walk and the evening dance, which do cost extra. (90 pula...

We had wonderful hospitality here! Our hostess and her team were so helpful and made us feel welcome, fetched us from Ghanzi and took us back again to fit in with local buses. We were so comfortable in our rondavel, complete with mosquito nets. The mattresses were rather too soft and mishapen, so could be improved but that was a...

This was the worst camp of our 30 days trip. Staff was very unfriendly, food was very poor, the bar was out of any drinks after 2 orders and although advertised that VISA cards were accepted it was not the case. On top of this all they invited us to join a bushman dance afterwhich they tried to force us...

We stayed here for one night. It was a funny and interesting experience to sleep in that little hut. One toilet was disgusting (dont want to blame the owners but the guest who messed it and didn't clean it afterwards), other toilets were okay. Showers had warm water. The bushmen walk was okay but still felt kind of strange sometimes....

Our cabin had no blankets and it was quite cold. We could have asked for blankets as others did, so this is mostly our fault. Other rooms were missing mosquito nets and everything seemed inconsistent. It was way too cold for an outdoor bathroom, but I am sure it is nice when the weather is warmer. All things considered it...

Nice simple chalets. No fuzz but pretty interior. No AC and acceptable outdoor toilet and shower. Lots of blankets for cold nights. Very interesting and informative bush dance and walk by the sand people. Good beds and pillows.
