We went there for a drink and it was an effort to order the right thing - they did not understand what we were asking and it was only a hot chocolate! We were there in 2012

This casino is in Francistown. There are three casinos in Gaborone: The Gaborone Sun, The Grand Palm and at the Gaborone Hotel at the Bus Station. A new one at Masa Square is not yet licensed.
