Cynthia Mothelesi is one of the women in the tourism business focused on telling Botswana’s indigenous story. As the founder of Happy Soul Adventures, Mothelesi owns a travel company which is geared towards selling and connecting people with the local culture.

Based in Mogobane, she offers picnics by the dam, boating, pottery lessons, arts, and a village cycling tour. “We also have a small guesthouse which offers the typical Setswana life experience. We offer small intimate moments for a small crowd and this is done through collaborations with the Village Development Committee. I have learnt that collaborations are effective and can push us, locals, to greater heights because we all have different skills,” she said. Incepted in 2017, Mothelesi who used to work at Botswana Tourism Organisation was inspired to start her own company and change the narrative. She said the highlight of her work was being able to connect with different cultures and have her eyes opened to the diversity that is out there. “The reason was mainly that tourism has just been fixated on the safari model.

Working for BTO, I was exposed to different tourist experiences and learnt about other people’s cultures. Even when I travel, I want to connect with the local culture wherever I am.
