Kolobeng Creek brings dog racing


With dog racing still an anomaly to most Batswana with regard to entertainment, one company has made it its mission to make it an attraction to look forward to. About 40 km away from the City of Gaborone and set in the heritage village of Manyana, the Annual Kolobeng Creek Dog Race course is one of the most picturesque dog racing venues in the country. The event is scheduled for June 30th at Manyana village.

Dog racing, also called greyhound racing, entails greyhounds vigorously attempting to outpace each other around an enclosed track in pursuit of an electrically controlled and propelled mechanical hare (rabbit). Dog racing is a 20th-century outgrowth of the older sport of coursing, where dogs hunted by sight rather than scent.

Kganela explained that the event is family friendly and has activities that speak to everyone, be it young or old. “The race course precinct offers a wide range of offerings, heritage sites, nature walks and entertainment area, making it an ideal leisure destination for anyone. We look forward to people enjoying this unique experience,” said Tiro Kganela.

“For the 2018 edition race there will be two main hospitality facilities – the Escapades Marquee and the Dimawe Marquee, both offering VIP Experience for networking with commanding views of the race course towards the finish line. For a truly unique experience, people should enjoy the thrill of the track like never before,” added Kganela.
