Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Gaborone is known for parks, shopping, theme parks, historic sites, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through Mokolodi Nature Reserve, pause for some photo ops at Three Chiefs' Statues, don't miss a visit to Matsieng's Footprints, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sri Balaji Temple.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Gaborone trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Cape Town, South Africa to Gaborone is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or drive. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Cape Town in June since evenings lows in Gaborone dip to 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Chobe National Park.
