Gaborone ©
Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Explore hidden gems such as Kgale Hill and ISKCON Gaborone (Krishna Balaram Palace). Popular historic sites such as ISKCON Gaborone and Jamia Mosque are in your itinerary. And it doesn't end there: take a peaceful walk through Khutse Game Reserve, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Trinity Church, browse the different shops at Riverwalk Mall, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Gaborone fast, fun, and easy.

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Gaborone is an approximately 25-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Sao Paulo to Gaborone due to the time zone difference. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Sao Paulo in June: highs in Gaborone hover around 20°C, while lows dip to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) to allow time to travel to Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.
