Mokolodi Nature Reserve
I went to the Mokolodi Nature Reserve, as a friend had recommended it after they had visited Botswana, and when I went on holiday, I chose to go there, first, as he told me how brilliant it was. I loved every minute of being there, and I plan to go there again, if I get the chance to visit Botswana again. The wildlife was incredible, and I was fortunate enough to see many animals, my favourite being the giraffe.

My personal favourite sunset
I've watched sunsets the world over since I started travelling five years ago and I literally felt the hairs stand up on the back of my neck at Gaborne Dam. While supplying the residents of Botswana's capital with their water, this is also an attraction for tourists and a great place for exercising if you'd like to get something done.

Re. Having a flutter
If you like gambling I suggest that you give Marang Casino a try on your next trip to Botswana. Especially if you're flying from the airport. It's about 10 kms in total and all the taxi drivers will know it.

Having a flutter
The nearest I got to gambling in an African environment was at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay. I was able to actually go one better during my time in Botswana though and headed to the Gaborne Sun. Its billing as a premium casino is deserved but it's the scenery outside that is the main draw here. Personally I like gambling but my partner also enjoyed hanging around with me to take in the surroundings.

Re. about more than its nature
May I ask when you went? Try the low-season and you will probably have the tour all to yourself as I did. You'll even be able to hand-pick which places to visit on the tour if you're aware of what's in store and should get a bit of money reduced.

Botswana is about far more than its nature
Personally I think it's a crying shame that more tourists don't venture on the 'No 1 Ladies Detective Agency Tour' - especially if they are fond of the Precious Ramotswe Alexander McCall Smith detective stories. With all the walking around that is done though, the chance to enjoy the environment and scenery is still there at all times. The only complaint I have is that the tour was a bit busy and we didn't really feel valued. Still enjoyable though.
