Kesmo Lodge is a School-Hotel in the center of Maun, in Botswana. It has all the classic amenities of a lodge, but doubles as a training ground for students of tourism from the school Career Dreams Centre. It is the perfect place to do your bit as a responsible traveller before heading into the Okavango Delta.
The students work in all the different posts so they get real hands on experience in reception, the kitchen, as guides … Working more with tourists provides an invaluable experience to them.
The general manager of Kesmo Lodge was also a student from Career Dreams Centre, and does an excellent professional job.
