"SMALL CAPITAL" Top 5 Page for this destination Gaborone by DAO

Gaborone Travel Guide: 52 reviews and 122 photos

GABS IS GREAT !

IT'S NOT BIG AND IT'S NOT BUSY. THIS HAS TO BE THE EASIEST CAPITAL CITY IN THE WORLD TO HAVE A WALK AROUND. PLEASE COME FURTHER INSIDE FOR A TOUR!

ITS ALL CLOSE BY

Gaborone has a small historical area that can be explored in minutes really. The outlying urban sprawl can put you off coming into the centre, but its actually the most tranquil part of the city, especially on a Sunday. Have a gentle stroll around and enjoy your lunch outside. It’s a shame all Capital cities don’t have this small town charm.

    Thanks DAO. I've had a great time, a beer and cider festival and Go Ape. That was fantastic fun. Hope you're well too.

    Dao- good informative tips on Gaberone, with nice photos. I agree re SPAR shops! LOL! They are still popular in SA. The museum looks interesting. Heavy handed cops are a pain in many parts of Africa.

    In one job I had, I sent law journals to a law professor in Gaborone, so I wanted to see what the place was like--Not bad! Good work here, DAO! Very informative and good pictures too!

    Great to see and hear about Botswana. I lived there in the 80s and loved it but sadly havent been back yet. Thanks for the memories and the update. Gaborone has grown but the Mall is still the same.
