Explore Gaborone with a Local                        

At first glance, Botswana’s capital city of Gaborone doesn’t seem to have much to divert attention, besides looking at a handful of statues or wandering through shopping malls, so it’s not typically on the list for first-time visitors. However, an immersive tour with female-run Happy Soul Adventures reveals the layered life lived by ordinary citizens. Explore the surrounding sprawl of villages on a bicycle ride, following scenic dirt roads through a pastoral landscape, and engage with rural communities by crafting pottery, learning how to cook local dishes or singing karaoke in the bars of Gaborone.
