Gaborone Travel Guide

Why? Choose to travel to Gaborone in Botswana if you have limited time in Southern Africa but wish to get a taste of wildlife viewing. This sprawling city, not too far from Johannesburg, is on the doorstep of the Mokolodi Nature Reserve offering game drives and walks, and the city itself boasts some good souvenir shops where you can find bargain mementoes of your Gaborone holiday and a lively night-life.
When? Gaborone is hot and dry throughout the year, the only rainfall that can mar your holiday, falling in summer as sudden, heavy showers that quickly dry up. Summers can be blisteringly hot, and during winter it is chilly at night. The best time to travel to Gaborone is during spring or autumn (September/October or March/April/May).
Who for? Wildlife enthusiasts intent on enjoying a safari in one of Botswana's famed game parks travel to Gaborone as the gateway to their adventures.
