Shorobe is a sizeable village about 26km north of Maun, and 53km south of South Gate, Moremi. Drive slowly through here as you can usually expect plenty of goats and people wandering on the road. On the south side of the village you'll see Shorobe Primary School, and dotted throughout are a few small, local shops which sell soft drinks and very basic supplies. The one place that is worth seeking out here is the Babomoso Basketry Co-op, which was set up as an income-generating project for the local people by Conservation International. It sells a wide range of baskets at generally lower prices than you'll find in Maun. What's more, you know that the money you pay is going straight back to the local community.
