Get to Know Gaborone

Botswana’s relatively new capital offers trendy shopping malls, interesting tours, a few monuments and the National Museum and Art Gallery

While most visitors tend to skip Botswana’s capital in favour of the safari gateway towns of Maun and Kasane, the city is an interesting place to meet locals and spend a couple of days.

Most safari visitors stop in Gaborone simply to make use of the excellent shopping malls to stock up on provisions for a self-drive safari or to visit the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP) booking office to book and pay for campsites in the country’s various game sanctuaries. 

Taking a quick turn around the tiny Gaborone Game Reserve will provide visitors with a good opportunity to whet their safari appetites ahead of a trip to one or more of the country’s premier parks. The city reserve is home to a variety of antelope, including eland, oryx, wildebeest, kudu and warthog.
