A Safari Paradise
Traditionally, Botswana has not encouraged the backpacker traveller, concentrating instead on the luxury end of the tourism market. But there are hostels available – and very nice they are too! Take the Mokolodi Backpackers 10km from Gabarone. Set in idyllic African bush, this hostel in Botswana, offers accommodation in comfortable little thatched ‘cottages’, with air-conditioning, free WiFi and bar. All for around £11 a night.
