National Assembly Building, Gaborone

3.6
See National Assembly Building, dating back to the 1960s and serving as the center of the country's political life. Take a walk along the still pools and admire rows of elegant white arches, which complement the minimalistic design of the gardens. Inside, look at the pictures of all parliament members and peek into government cabinets. Check in advance whether a parliamentary session will be in progress at the time you plan to visit; if it is, you won't be allowed inside. Put National Assembly Building on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Gaborone trip planner.
