Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Khwai Concession and ISKCON Gaborone. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at ISKCON Gaborone (Krishna Balaram Palace), head outdoors with Kgale Hill, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and pause for some serene contemplation at Christ the King Cathedral.

To find traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Gaborone journey planner.
