Gaborone is the first stop you'll make on your visit to the nature reserves and safari parks of Botswana. Plan a visit to the Orapa House, the largest diamond sorting center in the world or see the weaving center at Lentswe-La-Odo. Fish at the dams at Shashe, Bokaa or right in Gaborone. Visit the Bahurutse Cultural Village or climb Kgale Hill to view wildlife right in the city. Three paths up the hill offer varied climbing challenges. But save time to relax at one of Gaborone's fine hotels as well as enjoy a meal and a spin at the casino.
