About
Climb to the highest point in Gaborone and view the ever growing city from the top of Kgale Hill. Recommend parking at Game as it is more secure. Guided pathways to the top of the hill. Beware of thieves and baboons!

Every morning I pass this hill before going to the office and coming back from the office. The hill gives you a relaxed feeling before going into the hectic city and it gives you a feeling of release when coming out of town.
