The Mokolodi Restaurant is an open-air space near the entrance to the Mokolodi Nature Reserve. There is a large terrace with views out over the Nature Reserve. The Mokolodi Restaurant is a very pleasant place for a cold drink and a meal, and to talk about the animals you saw on your tour of the Nature Reserve. The menu is... More

Food is consistently good. Always enjoy the pizza. Staff is always pleasent. However if they are busy service can be on the slow side. But all in all a very pleasant way to spend a dinner or lunch.

Always a good experience! The location is outside of town on a busy road but worth the trip. Lovely ambience a mixed menu offering sufficient choice. Get there before subset and experience the bush feel. Booking recommended as it does get quite busy.

Such a nice restaurant just 10 km away from the capital! A bush experience in a typically Motswana place. No matter if you come with your partner, with your family or friends, you will be welcomed by a friendly staff and will enjoy good food topped by a beer from the tap. I definitely recommend the pizzas which are in... More

Atmosphere was great. Sit outdoors under the African sky. Service was not good at all. Had to look and call the waitress every time we needed service. Food average. Pizza was not great and dry.

This is a beautifully located restaurant in the game reserve. The staff are wonderful. There is a wide range of food and drink. We had pizzas and they were all super. One of us had the pint of scampi and really enjoyed it. Super location, the thatched roofs lend a really interesting perspective. Highly recommended.

After the game drive, decided to pop in here for lunch. The long island is perfect. The food is lovely and a plate is big enought to share if you are not much of an eater. Had a great lunch. Service was also amazing. Thank you so much.

This is a favourite spot 10km south of Gaborone - easy enough to find off the A1 towards Lobatse ( go past Game City Mall and Kgale Hill on your right, keep going until you see the Mokolodi Game Reserve signs to your right ) . Returned here after a couple of years to find it under new management but... More

We had dinner here, which was very tasty and good service. They have plenty of choice! There is a floodlit waterhole in front of the restaurant. During dinner they told us that they start with a breakfast menu which we tried some days later and it was great to have a delicious breakfast on the terrace. Great value for money!
