Everybody needs a night on the town once in a while, and while staying at one of the finer hotels in Gaborone, you will find a few places where you can paint the town red at least once during your stay.
Chatters Bar, located in the Cresta Lodge Gaborone, is a classy establishment featuring easy-on-the-ear live performances on most nights of the week, which can be enjoyed while savouring something cool from the well-stocked bar.
You will find No.1 Ladies’ Opera House just south of Gaborone on the Lobatse Road. At this quaint establishment, which is the brainchild of author Alexander McCall Smith, you can sit back and enjoy satisfying local performances such as community theatre, Setswana singing and even the occasional full scale opera. Nip into Bean Bag Café at half time for good coffee, scrumptious cakes and light meals.
Feeling lucky? The Grand Palm Casino on Molepolole Rd provides a range of Gaborone activities and makes for an elegant outing with upmarket Gaborone restaurants, 150 slot machines, blackjack tables, and even a cinema for your amusement.
Also located in this complex, the Kalahari Cocktail Lounge is the spot for hip and happening Gaborone nightlife featuring a range of cocktails, smoothies and snacks to be enjoyed in the company of the city’s up and coming young professionals.
If you have youngsters of your own in tow, head for an evening of family friendly fun at Kart City located at Airport Junction Mall. Children love whizzing around the tracks on these motorised go-karts and adults are welcome to take up the challenge too.
Have you booked accommodation in Gaborone this festive season? Even if you are passing through en-route to one of Botswana’s wonderful wilderness destinations, select one of many Gaborone activities and enjoy a taste of African city life before hitting the bush.
