Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Step off the beaten path and head to ISKCON Gaborone (Krishna Balaram Palace) and Trinity Church. Go for a jaunt from Gaborone to Moremi Game Reserve to see Khwai Concession about 9 hours away. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at ISKCON Gaborone, pause for some photo ops at Three Chiefs' Statues, buy something for everyone on your list at Riverwalk Mall, and get outside with Kgale Hill.
