Kuminda Farm (a trading name of Mandikubhate Investments (Pty) Ltd) is situated in Marobela lands in the Central District, 2.3 km off the Francistown / Nata road, 45 km from Francistown, opposite the Marobela turn. It is an excellent stopover between Francistown and Nata for those travelling North to either Kasane or Maun.
Kuminda Farm occupies an area of 15 hectares and is a substantially undisturbed natural area of bush, occupied mainly by rock rabbits which live in two rocky outcrops which in turn host some of the largest trees in the area. The farm also hosts school and college groups, focusing mainly on cultural education/exchange programs as well as cultural events and small scale integrated farming.
There is abundant birdlife, plenty of unusual flora and fauna and a tranquil atmosphere for relaxation and outdoor activities. The buildings also blend in with the environment and the attractive traditional structures have been developed using available natural resources in the area and using traditional materials and techniques both in construction and architecture. The development continues to provide temporary employment to a number of women and youth in the area. Kuminda Farm has evolved into what it is over the past 6 years. We also have public liability insurance cover.
They will be able to access the whole farm, they will need to bring walking boots/trainers, hat, sun protection cream and very comfortable casual clothes, a jacket or sweater in winter (May-August). There is a lot to see: exotic birds, small animals, succulents, wild flowers, trees, visit traditional homes, learn how to cook traditional food, learn to build using mud and many more
Interaction with guests
I enjoy interacting with guests and as long as they let me know in advance when they will arrive I will be there, my farm has good reviews on trip advisor
Other things to note
Sometime we host cultural events, we can actually organize a cultural night for groups, we have tents and we have hosted events where we get rain dancers and Ju'hoansi San dancers/trance healers....this is a mind blowing experience. Contact us for a quotation
We have dogs at the farm, so guests should be people who don't mind dogs. We have chickens and goats. We don't want rowdiness, we prefer guests who want to learn about our culture and also will not mind our traditional meals although other meals will be provided...please request for a meal quotation...breakfast or dinner when you book. Our environment is happy, casual and welcoming so no grumpy people. Tidy casual people who don't mind nature walks and learning some of our traditional skills
