Providing a respite to travelers trekking the north of Botswana, Gaborone is a young metropolis that experienced most of its boom with the discovery of diamonds in the 1970s. Its downtown is dominated by modern buildings and services, from glittering hotels to casinos. The Main Mall boasts a plethora of shops, while the surrounding area hosts monuments and government buildings. Monkeys and birds call out from the wetlands of Gaborone Game Reserve, and Kgale Hill delights with panoramic views.
The world's largest inland delta, Okavango Delta (also known as Okavango Swamp) is formed by the emptying of the Okavango River into the Kalahari Desert at the place where an ancient lake once sat. An immensely wildlife-rich expanse of islands, islets and lagoons (many of which change shape and even disappear with the coming of every annual flood season), Okavango is home to many safari camps, most of which aren't reached by road but rather by small airplane from Maun, the area's main village.
