Things To Do
Ideally located in the heart of the city's new Central Business District, Hilton Garden Inn Gaborone puts you in easy reach of restaurants, shops and the area’s most popular attractions. Some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife can be found just minutes from our front door. Botswana’s most popular tourist site, Gaborone Game Reserve, is just a 15-minute drive and features 1,500 acres of fascinating wildlife such as zebras, impala, kudu, ostriches, wildebeest, and warthogs. The park is also a favorite destination for birdwatching. Mokolodi Nature Reserve is a short drive from our Gaborone hotel and home to more wildlife as well as an education center.
Just steps from our hotel is another tourist favorite, Three Dikgosi Monument, located in the Central Business District. This bronze sculpture depicts three tribal chiefs and is the center of many events throughout the year. Explore a host of indigenous plants in the National Botanical Garden, a 17-acre park located along the Notwane River. Indulge in a unique shopping experience at Botswanacraft, Botswana’s largest and best craft emporium offering traditional souvenirs, pottery, jewelry and baskets from across the country, as well as books, carvings and textiles.
