Kgomotso is s star - beautiful customer service! I enjoyed my stay very much. Everyone at Goo-Moremi offered me the best service ever. They went over and above. I will defiantly come back and this time with the whole family! Thank you for everything!

I absolutely loved every second at what I call "Moremi Paradise". After a short-ish, scenic drive with my husband from JHB through the Waterberg Mountains and into Botswana we arrived to smiling faces and a beautiful atmosphere.

We stayed in the Meru tents which were amazing, so nicely furnished.

The restaurant and bar is ideal for relaxing, we loved the swimming pool and sipping on Amarulas! The Gorge Hike was interesting, however we were not able to visit the 5th waterfall as we did not book in advance. Thank you Goo-Moremi for a beautiful, relaxing experience!

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. T

he 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.

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

A great place to stay. Accommodation very comfortable. Beautiful views. Guided gorge walk excellent. Highly recommend Goo-Moremi as a stay in spite of the bad road from the turn off.

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.

So sorry they did not come back to me regarding the longer hike, but in the end we had a lovely stay!

A.Barry (April 2017)


We had a great stay at Goo-Moremi Gorge, our rating for all services is 5 (Excellent!)

Rolf.F (Dec 2016)


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.

P. Lubbe (May 2016)


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!

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.
