The main mall is the heart and epicenter of Gaborone, with a legion of shops, banks, craft stalls and business offices. On the East of the mall is the Civic Centre where there is a vast public library. Next of the Civic centre is the distinct Pula Arch which commemorates the day of Gaborone’s inception, Independence day. The National Assembly is at the top of the Main Mall, along with a variety of government buildings. There is a war memorial close to this area that honors the Batswana who died during World War II.

2 Km from the main mall is the National Sports Stadium, where the Cricket club, Rugby Club and Tennis Associations meet (much of the sports are reflective of Botswana’s colonial past).  There is also a golf course in Phakalane.

Kgale Kill is located on the West of Gaborone. This grand hill provides travelers with ethereal views of the city and the Dam. There are several different routes leading up the hill, including the Rusty Route, the Transfeldt Trail, and the Cross Kopje route; each route takes less than one hour. In the hill, there are baboons and eagles as well as the occasional leopard to be seen- reminding the tourists of the African bush.
