Gaborone — 4 nights

Planned as the capital after Botswana gained independence in the 1960s, Gaborone quickly transformed into a bustling city and the country's commercial center.
Escape the urban bustle at Maroon Tours & Safaris and Crocodile Pools River Safaris. Step off the beaten path and head to ISKCON Gaborone (Krishna Balaram Palace) and Trinity Church. The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Christ the King Cathedral, delve into the lush surroundings at Khutse Game Reserve, buy something for everyone on your list at Airport Junction, and let the kids burn off some steam at InPlay.

Sparsely populated Botswana possesses some of the most unadulterated wilderness and animal-rich areas in Africa. Largely unfenced national parks allow the world's largest population of elephants to roam freely--these protected areas also shelter varied birdlife and many endangered and rare mammal species. Tourism in Botswana largely caters to visitors seeking luxury lodges and exclusive safari experiences, but expeditions into traditional villages are also strongly recommended. The preserved cultures of these agricultural settlements show a link between man and nature formed over centuries, a relationship that many visitors to Botswana come to reconsider in their own lives.
