The resort area, which is located at the back part of the Grand Palm hotel is mainly used for weddings, conferences, showcases and corporate events. It is a property of Peermont Botswana.

Located next to a small dam, the Boma has been barricaded it with reeds to bring about an indigenous touch to it. The area attracts monkeys and different types of birds, adding a natural feel and touch of the safari element.

It is an open place area with huge tree and green lawn. The kitchen has ovens and fireplace crafted with rocks.

 “It didn’t have that representation of Gaborone or Botswana at first, by putting these reeds from Maun we wanted it to have a feel of Maun the northern area of the country,” said Clive Tavener the operations executive of Peermont Botswana.

He said upon deciding to revamp the place last year, it was cleared out and expanded to have capacity of

up to 190 people. “As you can see the view of the water is clearer now, the environment is relaxing it brings out the safari side,” Tavener said.

He explained that the new facilities such as bathrooms and pizza ovens have been introduced to the resort area. Another addition is the Sunday chillas, a jazz music session with braai taking place.

“Our menus are wide, as an individual you now have the liberty of choosing a menu from any of our restaurants. You will not be limited to the in-house menus any more. As for the Sunday chillas, it is up to you to give the chef your meat to braai for you, or you may want to do it on your own,” Tavener said.

The official reopening was graced by diplomats, celebrities and Gaborone socialites. Entertainment for the night was provided by various local acts such as jazz maestro Nono Siile.
