THREE CHIEFS MONUMENT:The Three Dikgosi Monument is a bronze sculpture located in the Central Business District of Gaborone, Botswana. The statues depict three dikgosi (tribal chiefs): Khama III of the Bangwato, Sebele I of the Bakwena, and Bathoen I of the Bangwaketse.The monument features 5.4-metre (18 ft) tall bronze statues of three dikgosi, or chiefs, who played important roles in Botswana's independence: Khama III, Sebele I, and Bathoen I The three chiefs traveled to Great Britain in 1895 to ask Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary of State for the Colonies, and Queen Victoria to separate the Bechuanaland Protectorate from Cecil Rhodes's British South Africa Company and Southern Rhodesia (present-day Zimbabwe). Permission was granted, and meant that the Batswana remained under direct British rule until independence in the 1960s.

MAIN MALL & GOVERNMENT ENCLAVE: Gaborone’s first mall – often referred to as The Main Mall – is a pedestrian-only business and commercial centre that boasts some of the town’s oldest shops and office buildings, as well as one of its first hotels, The President Hotel. Although some buildings have been refurbished, most of the architecture remains the same.  At its top end, across the Nelson Mandela Road, sits the Government Enclave and the National Assembly; and at the opposite end are the Gaborone City Town Council offices. Shoppers will enjoy browsing the many outdoor stalls of African arts, crafts and curios that line the main walkway.

PASS THROUGH: National Stadium (Offering a 40 000 seating capacity) and The university of Botswana (he University of Botswana, established in 1982 has been closely involved in the national development process of Botswana.  Today the university, referred to with much admiration by locals as “Mma-Dikolo” (Mother of Universities), boasts nine faculties and a school for graduates, enroute to Tlhapong Visual arts;

Situated in the former magistrate’s house (1902), the Thapong Visual Arts Centre is home to Botswana’s young, gifted – and sometimes avant-garde – artists. In addition to the exhibitions it regularly stages, this very active centre also periodically offers art courses for children.

Also found in the same location, is The No. 1 Ladies Coffee House, named after Alexander McCall Smith’s Novel series ‘The Number one Ladies detective agency’. A quaint, art filled restaurant with lots of charm and innovative treats. The ingredients are super fresh with unexpected culinary combinations and its ambience makes sense with Thapong as its backdrop.

GABORONE DAM:he Gaborone Dam, the water source for Gaborone, is in a sense the foundation of Gaborone itself. In a dry region water is of crucial importance, and the fact that a large dam could be successfully created here was a necessary precondition for the growth of the city. It is located by the edge of the city, set among hills and dense bush, is the city's main water source, Gaborone Dam.
