Gaborone — 5 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.
Spend the 16th (Thu) in the pleasant surroundings of Mokolodi Nature Reserve. There's lots more to do: pause for some photo ops at Three Chiefs' Statues, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, get outside with Kgale Hill, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Gaborone Game Reserve.

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.
