I am a regular business visitor to Botswana. Whilst in Gaborone I stay at the Cresta Lodge as they are close to the majority of my customers. Over the last 15 years I have become part of their family. I have held many successful events in their fantastic conference facility.
Wherever their is Cresta that's were I stay. I was recently in Jwaneng attending a technical exhibition. So I naturally stayed at Cresta - Jwaneng. Driving back to Gaborone (180km's) I realised I had left my personal pillows in the room. On arrival at Cresta Lodge (Gaborone) I reported to reception that I had left my pillows behind. This was Friday lunchtime. After checking with Jwaneng I was informed, yes they had my pillows and they would send them by courier, arrival 9am Saturday morning. I say to myself "that will not happen" I will collect them on my next trip. Before 9am I receive a call from reception - my pillows had arrived. Great, then the next surprise " sir we are please to be of assistance - no cost to you" woo.
This is Botswana, it's moves at a slower pace than most of us expect. So make allowances. Your food takes that bit longer to arrive, book a taxi well in advance (1 hr).
No matter where you stay, it takes longer.More
