Alexander McCall Smith in his bestselling series, The No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, brilliantly captures the essence of Botswana and its spirited people. His books have also encouraged thousands of tourists to see for themselves what this magical country has to offer and it’s no wonder, as this beautiful, earthy country offers visitors vast savannahs, incredible wildlife and charming Batswana’s.
Gaborone, the capital and largest city of Botswana, is where travellers will feel a keen sense of kinship with McCall Smith’s descriptive narratives. The Gaborone Sun , often referenced in the book and widely acknowledged as the best hotel in Botswana is a great stopover and business hotel. It’s an urban retreat with the added advantage of a premium casino , two great restaurants and a conference centre.
Other highlights in Gaborone include the rural village of Mochudi, Batswanacraft, Three Chiefs Monument and the Riverwalk Mall.
