Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Kick off your visit on the 21st (Mon): stop by Botswanacraft and then look for all kinds of wild species at Mokolodi Nature Reserve. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some serene contemplation at Christ the King Cathedral, get outside with Kgale Hill, then pause for some photo ops at Three Chiefs' Statues, and finally admire the striking features of National Assembly Building.
