A clean large room with desk, reading chair, 3/4 bed, lights, many outlets, large wardrobe, etc. Access to yard, shade under trees, picnic table. Use of kitchen and bathroom (shared). Meals possible in main house. Breakfast available on request.
We are near the Engen Petrol station and the Old Choppies Mall in Tlokweng, first plot on the right on the brick road looking west from the Engen.
The mini-buses stop across the road.
Interesting people with many fascinating stories to tell. Welcomed me in though I had not noticed that they said they were leaving Botswana and closing Okovango House on the site, fed me and talked to me.
Sheldon's guesthouse is very quaint, and Sheldon has lots of interesting stories to tell & experiences to share about living in Gaborone for the past 20+ years. The bathroom/shower did leave a bit to be desired, but I suppose this is closer to the 'true Botswana experience', which is what you're looking for anyway, isn't it?
Sheldon and Gudrun were very helpful and offered me some of their food several times, which I gladly accepted. Regardless of their age they are busy people, but they were flexible when I had to change my plans and left a day early. The room was in a separate house that is also the home to two friendly African ladies, one of whom has a young child. Except for spider webs on the ceiling, the room was clean, unlike the bathroom and the kitchen, which were inhabited by flies and ants. That and the place being a little outside Gaborone were little minuses, but the experience of getting to know my extraordinary hosts made my stay there worthwhile ;)
