Bahurutshe Cultural Lodge


Situated about 5km east of the Botswelelo Centre, in Mmankgodi, and 2km off the Gaborone–Kanye road, is Bahurutshe Cultural Lodge, an innovative cultural village, chalet complex and camping ground (camping/chalets P100/450) where visitors can very easily access the traditional elements of Batswana music, dance and cuisine.

The comfy chalets really do up the African-hut thing, with cool stone, mud walls and rustic-smelling thatch enclosing you come the evening.
