Lonely Planet review for Gaborone Game Reserve
The Gaborone Game Reserve was established in 1988 by the Kalahari Conservation Society to give the Gaborone public an opportunity to view Botswana's wildlife in a natural and accessible location.
Although the reserve is only 5 sq km, it boasts wildebeests, elands, gemsboks, kudus, ostriches and warthogs. The bird life, which includes kingfishers and hornbills, is particularly plentiful and easy to spot from observation areas. The reserve also has several picnic sites and a small visitor education centre.
All roads in the reserve are accessible by 2WD, and guided drives are not offered. The reserve is located about 1km east of Broadhurst Mall, and can be accessed from Limpopo Dr.
