Gaborone Flights Guide
Before Gaborone was the modern capital city of Botswana, it was a British fort established by Cecil Rhodes. In that fort, plans of action against the South African Boers were drawn up. Before this, Gaborone’s large swathes of hot tropical plains were occupied by a number of tribes, and they remained largely uninhabited until construction began on the planned city of Gaborone in 1964.
Botswana gained its independence two years later, and Gaborone became the capital a further year on, having been constructed in 3. Nearby are the Oodi Hills, where visitors can satisfy their need to hike. Kgale Hill is the main hill, and one of the country’s largest, offering the best views over the scenic land. They say one should stick to the paths so as not to frighten the aggressive baboons. Gaborone is a planned city, and it offers ample pedestrian areas. There are not many offerings in the city besides the Hare Krishna Temple and the Thapong Visual Arts Center. Visitors come for the game parks. The Gaborone Game Reserve is the closest park, and rental cars are available. The Mokolodi Game Park, however, is the main attraction. There are zebra, hippopotamus, giraffe, kudos and more.
Sir Seretse Khama International Airport is the main airport of the country and hub of Air Botswana. Kenya Airways, TAAG Angola Airlines and South African Express Airways also fly here.
