Lion Park Resort, Gaborone

The only theme park in the country, Lion Park Resort features a separate lion enclosure, water slides, and many rides, including the tallest roller coaster in Africa. If you came to see the lions, ask for a guide at the ticket counter. A small Ferris wheel offers an encompassing view of the whole park. The park also features a shaded, paved campsite where you can spend the night (but be aware that you may be kept awake by roaring lions). Activities and rides are mostly suited for children and teenagers.
