The city of Gaborone is the capital of Botswana in Southern Africa. Gaborone is home to 300 000 people and was established in 1890. For travellers who are on business in Botswana, a hotel in Gaborone is required of which visitors have a vast choice.
Our first recommendation is the centrally located, luxurious Gaborone Sun Hotel which is operated by the South African Sun International hotel group. Guests can expect comfortable accommodation, convenient facilities and services during their stay at the Gaborone Sun Hotel. This Gaborone city hotel offers complimentary airport transfers for guests.
An exciting hotel development in Gaborone is the addition of a Town Lodge which is part of the City Lodge Hotel Group. With its 104 well appointed hotel rooms, the Town Lodge Gaborone opened in February 2013.
