PLEASE NOTE (January 2017)

THERE ARE MAJOR ROAD WORKS TAKING PLACE ON THE MAIN A1  Gaborone/Francistown ROAD AS IT ENTERS  FRANCISTOWN from the South. Don’t go into town as all internal roads have detours.

Directions to Woodlands (VERY EASY)

As you approach the city you will be travelling on the new highway towards town. At the THIRD set traffic lights turn LEFT.  (You will notice Builder’s Warehouse/CTM on your left!)

THEN follow this road towards AIRPORT/NATA A3 taking you over the double rail track then through the township. (quite safe)

Keep going for some distance – and eventually the road curves to the right (Catholic Church building on left).

At the major T-Junction (Airport/Kasane/A3 ROAD) turn LEFT [travelling passed the informal market place.] —- 

FOLLOW THE WOODLANDS SIGNS! 

Once on the A3 North (Nata/Kasane/Airport) Road look out for the “Woodland Kingfisher” signs on the right hand side of the road 10 kms North of Francistown.

You will have passed the Francistown International airport on your left and stadium on your right. (Our sign board and turnoff is exactly 2kms after the Orapa Rd turnoff on the RIGHT)

  • Travelling from Zimbabwe (south) on the A1, Plumtree/Bulawayo Road. On approaching Francistown, at the second large traffic light intersection, turn right. Travel along this road going over the railway line and through three more sets of traffic lights until the T-JunctionTurn right onto the A3-Nata/Kasane/Airport road.  After traveling about 10km from Francistown look out for the “Woodlands Kingfisher” sign on the right hand side of the road (this sign board is exactly 2km after the Orapa Road turnoff). Turn right onto the dirt road. Follow our signs.
  • When travelling South from Nata/Kasane on the A3 the sign board is clearly visible on the left-hand side of the road about 190kms south of Nata. (8kms after you have passed the national sign board stating 20kms to Francistown.)

Once you are off the main road you will travel on a 7km, passable, dirt road (also fit for non 4WD vehicles) leading to the reception. The road is well sign posted.

You will be welcomed by our friendly reception staff.

DO NOT USE THE UNMARKED ROAD LEADING FROM THE WAY BRIDGE TURNOFF. THIS ROAD IS NOW IMPASSABLE AFTER HEAVY RAINY SEASON. ONLY USE MARKED  ROAD!

LOOK OUT FOR THESE SIGNS!
