Pots and basketware and other crafts from Kanye and the Kalahari are for sale in our small gift shop.

You can watch the local farmers drive their animals past Motse Lodge to the nearby Mmakgodumo Dam. If you want some exercise, walk down to the dam, and admire its birdlife or try fishing.

How to find Motse Lodge:

Kanye is 48 km West from the Pioneer Gate border post at Lobatse, and 100 km North from the Ramatlabama border post at Mafikeng on the Trans Kalahari Highway, about 400 km from Johannesburg.
It is 1040 km from Kanye to Windhoek - a good day's drive - and only 600 km from Ghanzi. From Ghanzi it is only 300 km to Maun - the gateway to the Okavango.
Coming from Lobatse or Mafikeng you go through Kanye till you have passed the big BP filling station. Turn right about 100 metres after the BP station, just before the bus rank.
We are 3 km down the road, the first 2 km on tar, and the last one on gravel.
Coming from Gaborone / Jwaneng, go past Kanye Centre and turn left after the bus rank.
Look for our sign board at this junction.
