What country is Gaborone in?
At 1014 m above sea level is the capital of Botswana, which today has about 230,000 inhabitants. However, 50 years ago, around the year 1966, things looked very different here: the small village, a railway station on the border with South Africa, had only about 1000 inhabitants.
The capital of Botswana is located in the very south and is also a border city with South Africa. With a population of 250,000, it is also the largest in the country. It is located at an altitude of 1,000 meters on a plateau surrounded by the Kgale Hills. The town was founded in 1890 by chief Kgosi Gaborone. in 1966 it had just under a thousand inhabitants. The growth only began when the seat of government was moved from Mafikeng, South Africa, to Gaborone. Among the attractions is the National Museum with an Art Gallery. Ethnographic and archaeological exhibits of Botswana are shown there, as well as works by contemporary artists.
If you are going to Gaborone, you should definitely bring a crime novel by Alexander McCall Smith. The focus is on the fictional first private detective of Botswana, Mma Precious Ramotswe.
