Welcome to Palapye

Beyond that, and despite its name coming from the word phalatswe, which means 'many impalas' in Sekgalagadi or 'Large Impala' in Setswana, there's little reason to linger. This is not Botswana's most attractive town – not for nothing is Palapye known as the ‘powerhouse of Botswana’, thanks to the massive coal-burning power plant that operates in nearby Morupule.
