Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Explore hidden gems such as Spas & Wellness and Christ the King Cathedral. There's lots more to do: stroll through Mokolodi Nature Reserve, appreciate the history behind Three Chiefs' Statues, take in the spiritual surroundings of ISKCON Gaborone, and pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity Church.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Gaborone is an approximately 3-hour combination of train and flight. You can also take a bus; or drive.
