Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Get a sense of the local culture at ISKCON Gaborone and National Museum. Pack the 22nd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Lion Park Resort. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Mokolodi Nature Reserve, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Balaji Temple, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity Church, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
