Let the activities begin!
Gaborone Game Reserve
1 Take a guided tour to Gaborone Game Reserve to see the wildlife of Botswana in their natural habitat. Established in 1988 this Reserve is the third busiest in the country. It boasts wildebeest, elands, gemsboks, kudus, ostriches and many species of birds which you may be lucky to see from the special observation areas. The visitors centre might be small but educational and full of great information.
Three Chiefs Monument
2 In a  city tour, you will get to see the impressively large historic statue of the Three Chiefs who had a significant part in the turning point of Botswana's history. Chief Khama III of the Bangweto, Chief Sebele I of the Bakwena and Chief Bathoen I of the Bangwaketse travelled to London in 1885 to ask to be kept under the British protection when a British industrialist tried to take over their land.
The National Museum and Art Gallery
3 A very informative and interesting guided tour is to The National Museum and Art Gallery. The museum was opened in 1968 and is a focal point of all things artistic and cultural. Its mission is to display and promote Botswana's natural and cultural heritage. The Art Gallery opened in 1975 and it has quality exhibitions of diverse art, crafts and photography. You really get to learn all about Botswana and its people when visiting here.
Ecological Park
4 A sightseeing tour to this Ecological Park will fascinate you. This welcome retreat for the city people shows visitors the simple and effective technologies for resource conservation and waste management. The park was developed to inspire you to live in an environmentally friendly life. There is a green shop which sells an assortment of products made from recycled to natural materials; jewellery, bags, children mobiles and much more.
Kgale Hill
5 To reach the peak of Kgale Hill, it is recommended to go with a guided tour. As you make your way to the highest point in Gaborone, the hike can be quite challenging in stages and sometimes steep, but when you reach the top, you will forget how hard it was to get there when you look out onto the most spectacular and amazing views. From the city’s major landmark, see the stunning landscape at sunset.  
National Botanical Garden
6 Take a lovely private tour through the National Botanical Garden. There are nine acres of garden that features collections of living plants in a beautiful natural setting with historic buildings. When being established the garden was designed around the indigenous trees and shrubs that were already at the site. The Herbarium was set up for research and a main goal of the planners was to promote awareness and conservation of plant life.
Sir Seretse Khama Statue
7 Another impressive statue to visit on a city tour is the striking bronze statue of Sir Seretse Khama Statue. Now facing the National Assembly after it was turned 180 degrees from facing the main mall. Sir Seretse Khama was the first president of Botswana and founding father. He established a unified democratic, multi-party and multi-racial society and was highly respected by many world leaders. Queen Elizabeth II knighted him in 1991.
The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency Film Set
8 A very enjoyable guided tour to take is the one to the film set of the T.V. series ‘The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency’. Located at the base of the landmark Kgale Hill, see where the production team rebuilt a section of the old-time Gaborone city. The long-term residents of the city have remarked on the set and how the exact look and feel of the Bygone era was captured and how colourful it is. A novel tour to take!
