Gaborone

pop 250,000

Botswana's diminutive capital, Gaborone (normally affectionately shortened to Gabs), is little more than a rambling village suffering from growing pains, drabness and a lack of definition. However, it serves as a convenient gateway to overland travellers arriving from South Africa and is a good supply stop before heading out to the national parks.
