Overall Guide : Gaborone is a laid back city. The several Malls in the city have good hangout places and there are cinemas in two of them. A few small secluded and pleasant restaurants like the Sanitas and Botswana Craft offer good menus.... more Otherwise for outdoor market kind of food the Main Mall is a good place. Gaborone is close to some tourist places where one can just go for a day out trip, like Bahurutshe Cultural Village, Mmokolodi Game Reserve and the like. If you are a camper there is a campsite located right in the city. The Tlokweng Border with South Africa is 20km south.
Not to be missed The Museum , game reserve , Riverawalk

Overall Guide : Very good. Useful. Safe. With good looks. Associative. Non-racial communities living in here are alwaya cooperative. But there is a need to be the improvement on the disposal of waste reconditioning of bus ranks and some of the building in... more general. Though here and there there are some out strays it is not bad like in other african cuontries.
Overall rating 7
Overall Guide : It is a very affordable place to stay, has transport at all times and more cheaper shops, the life style depends on one's opinion but i think if there is a place to conquer it all its Gaborone with everything... more at your convenience.

Overall Guide : Certainly a city with character if you take the time to get to know it. Cost of living has risen dramatically in the last 3 years - food and fuel particularly.
