Always our go-to stop when travelling through Botswana 🇧🇼 Immaculate camping facilities on grass next to the pool or bush campsites, we like both. A-frame chalets that share the ablutions which are big, spotless and have great showers, or very nice chalets with en-suite bathrooms, take your pick! Loads of birds so you can wake up to the dawn-chorus and do some bird viewing too. Friendly staff, braai packs and wood available at reception. Nice swimming 🏊♂️ pool too.
Woodlands is a really a pleasant place to stay-over or spend an extra night or two. The whole setup is well organised, very clean, has absolutely everything you may need (except fridge magnets) and the garden is beautifully maintained. The store is well stocked, the braai and brunch packs are good and the people are friendly.
We stopped over in Woodlands on the way back to SA and it was the best decision we could have made. Accommodation in the Riverview rooms was excellent (even though the river was dry in October) with everything provided and everything functioned well. We opted for host Mike's pre-prepared frozen food for supper (we chose curried chicken) and we can honestly say it was fantastic. The gardens and lush green lawns look like they come out of a gardening book. Excellent birding for the birders, although I was disappointed it rained on the morning we left so the birds were in hiding. This place is not to be missed and it is worth going to Botswana just to stay here. There is a sparkling pool, birds walks and other hiking routes, but most impressive was the value for money.
Whether you are camping or prefer to stay in a chalet, Woodlands is great. Very well maintained chalet with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The grounds are lovely with plenty of shade. We had booked for 2 nights , but unfortunately had to return home early. Despite this we were not charged anything at all for the 2nd night even though we only informed reception when we arrived. Highly recommended.
East Rand 4x4 Training and Tours stopped here for an overnight on the start of our Hunters rd tour. Camped on the well maintaned lawns near the refreshing pool. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Quiet and calm. Ablutions were excellent. A MUST stop at this venue, also enjoyed the bird life. See you again soon.
