The large industrial city is a location for stock exchanges and banks, car dealers and business centers. The numerous business travelers visit the capital of Botswana every year.

The surroundings of Gaborones is a treasure trove of natural attractions and nature reserves. Eco-tourism enthusiasts know the famous Mokolodi Nature Reserve. The fact that close to the valuable natural objects the large industrial city is located seems to the ecologists just terrible.
