GUEST REVIEWS FOR GOO-MOREMI GORGE IN BOTSWANA

 

When we arrived in Goo Moremi Gorge everything was fine. The trip from SA to Botswana went very well. Road conditions were good. The last kilometer to the lodge are flat and good to drive. They surprised us with an upgraded accommodation for free. The stay was a disappointment because of the rain. We had planned to hike the falls but they were not open because of the danger. When it rained the night before the gorge was closed. We shortened our stay with one day because there is not so much to do. Horse riding, mountain biking were plans of the management but not yet available. The service of the staff was good. The food in the restaurant and the breakfast were reasonable, although on our last day we were told that there was no more salad. Another point of criticism is that the wifi was poor. I could send and receive whatsapp message but I could not check my email. After the rains the trip back on the dirt road was no problem. Thank you again for your efforts.

For what we paid for our stay was average - there was no electricity on our first night, in which we ate super at the restaurant in complete darkness. Therefore the Wi-Fi and DSTV in our tents were not working. We could only get Wi-Fi at the restaurant. The food was definitely not the best. The tent booked for us was right below the restaurant - on Saturday there were a lot of visitors who came to the restaurant and bar who got incredibly rowdy and festive.  We tried to have lunch at the pool and have a swim, but left after an hour due to the vibe of the day visitors. When at the tent instead of peace and the sound of nature, all we could here was the drunken "jol" that was taking place at the restaurant.

Once the restaurant is up and running it will be a huge plus! Some of the cabinets in our chalets doors were loose and we also only had 1 fork. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and walk.

We had a great time at Goo Moremi. I see that they will be getting electricity soon which will enhance the facilities greatly. The hot water ran out overnight (to be fair, that is to be expected of solar heating geysers). The (short) guided trail to the waterfalls were great. The guide, Zuma, is well informed and gave us a lot of information about the area.

The facilities were excellent, solar power ran out but they had lovely solar powered lamps for us that were just fine, and hot water in the morning. Very relaxing. Thanks for the help!

S. Kilaru (January 2016)

 

We spent only one night on the way north but the set-up of the establishment is very pleasant and units are well maintained and clean.

A. Bartylak (October 2016)

 

Our stay at Goo-Moremi was lovely in every aspect. We were very impressed - Thank you!
