Hartford House

Peering through one teakwood door at Hartford House, you face a Colonial world. Opening another, the distant sounds of an ancient people at work lilt across the silent landscape, a country of great space, spectacular mountains and big skies. This place commands a headland between the world of traditional cultures and the splendid style of our settler forebears.

Planet Baobab

"Planet Baobab: A bright idea in the middle of nowhere..." Along the cracked and crop-less landscape on the road between Maun and Francistown, where elephants tear up any tree that dares to raise its head, a large grey hulk looms into sight at the edge of the road. If this is an elephant it is a very peculiar one! As the eyes recognise a giant anteater, the brain begins to wonder what might have been in that last beer?

We just arrived home last night from the honeymoon, we had a wonderful time, we truly didn't want to come home! The hotel, the food, the water sports, the service, just perfect.
