It might not be as well known as its South African neighbors, but there are some fabulous places to visit in Botswana. If you want the experience of wide open skies, incredible scenery and amazing wildlife, you’ll certainly get it in Botswana; it’s just a little understated, but no less magnificent. I promise you, these places to visit in Botswana will amaze and delight you.
One of the most underrated places to visit in Botswana is the nation’s capital, home to about a tenth of the total Botswana population. Gaborone is one of the fastest growing cities in the world but is still pleasantly small. Here you’ll find the National Museum and Art Gallery, the Three Kgosi Statues, the Gaborone Hare Krishna Temple and a great selection of restaurants and bars or shebeens. There are also several game reserves in and around Gaborone. A popular way to get to know the city and the surrounding area is to take the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Tour, inspired by Alexander McCall Smith’s series of hit novels featuring Mma Precious Ramotswe.
