Embark on a New Life in Gaborone

The great outdoors of Gaborone are hard to resist and provide many opportunities to seize the sunshine. Active expats can climb the 1,287 meters to the summit of Kgale Hill or "sleeping giant", while the 12 square miles of Mokolodi Nature Reserve has steenbok, giraffes and hippos, among other interesting wildlife. Much of the activity is found by the Gaborone Dam, where residents and tourists alike sail, go fishing, bird-watch, and windsurf. As the center of Botswana's national economy, much of Gaborone's workforce is employed in the services sector in general and financial services in particular. A number of national financial institutions have headquarters in the city, as well as several other important companies in sectors such as air travel, telecommunications, and diamond mining.
