Kgale Hill – Do not miss the enjoyable journey up Kgale Hill, one of Botswana’s tallest peaks (at about 100m). It offers a great perspective of the city and its environs. However, keep an eye out for baboons and avoid deviating from the trail. There are no guides and no admission charge to contend with. GO – BUT ONLY IF THE PARKING LOT IS FULL. The optimum time to visit is between 4 and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The middle of a weekend day is not an ideal time to do business. Going up alone in the lot near the quarry runs the danger of being robbed with a knife.

Village of Otse (approx. 55 km along A1 road south of Gaborone). Gaborone is a 30-minute drive away. Otse hamlet, locally referred to as “Letsekela” by its Balete residents, is surrounded by hills, with Manyelanong to the east and Baratani to the west. Manyelanong is one of only two locations where one may witness Cape vultures. Due to its elevation, difficulty of navigation, and cliffs, it is an ideal nesting area for vultures. As a result, the Mannyelanong Game Reserve was formed especially to conserve these critically endangered vultures. Baratani hill is well-known for one of the most remarkable tales of young lovers who were involved in an illicit romance. They planned to elope and fled to a neighboring hill, never to be seen again. Residents have never ascended this hill since then out of fear of not returning.
