If you are looking for some of the most beautiful scenery that you have ever seen, then make sure to come to Gaborone, as this city is home to several stunning nature reserves. Mokolodi Nature Reserve, for example, is great if you love hiking, picnicking, and seeing weird and wonderful animals. This nature reserve also boasts some brilliant vantage points on top of the hills, where you can look down over swathes of forests, looping rivers, and herds of native animals grazing there. If you want to enjoy the best vantage point in the city, though, then make sure to climb Kgale Hill. This hill has well marked hiking trails, and is the highest point in Gaborone. From its summit, you can look down over the city streets, and the view is especially good in the early morning or as the sun is setting. Head down to the Botswana Craft centre or one of the city’s bustling markets to pick up some authentic souvenirs. The Three Chiefs Statue is for many people the highlight of their stay in the city. This statue is a tribute to the creation of Botswana, and there are plenty of tour guides around to explain the significance of the statue and the history of the figures that it depicts.
Gaborone is quite spread out, so many visitors find that hiring a car is a good way to get around. A hire car also enables you to avoid the cost of a taxi. However, as well as taxis, there are regular minibuses and combis that will take you to key sights, such as the game parks and nature reserves. It can be a good idea to check with other people at your hotel to see if they are visiting the same attractions as you, so that you can team up and share the cost of transport.
