Only in Gaborone can you follow in the footsteps of its first lady detective, Precious Ramotswe. The enchanting novels by Alexander McCall Smith known as the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series have become worldwide bestsellers, and a tv series, putting Gaborone firmly on the tourism map.

Africa Insight offers 1/2 day walking and full day driving tours to the places mentioned in the books (currently a series of 9).  Upon request the tour can be modified to take in a couple of places around Gaborone which are not associated with the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

Gaborone is a surprising city, there are shopping malls which could have been transplanted from any large American city, exciting modern architecture, and so clean, Batswanans do not litter.

Botswana is more than the famous game parks in the north. It is certainly worthwhile to consider spending a couple of days in this interesting capital city.
