KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Gaborone

  • Car hire in Gaborone is a must when visiting this extraordinary location rich in natural beauty and wild experiences. Getting around Gaborone by public transport is not recommended as the schedules are often delayed and the vehicles can be dangerous if not provided by official traffic regulations, but honestly, there is no better way to explore the African bush than without limitations. Head to the Chobe National Park or drive around the Kalahari Desert for hours on end with no distractions.
  • Sir Seretse Khama International Airport, located 15 kilometres north of Gaborone City Centre, is the perfect place to start your bundu bashing adventure, with its choice of car hire companies located at the airport. There are several well-known car hire companies at the airport. You'll be returning the vehicle to the same location as you collected it, if you are taking it back to the airport. However, there are secondary drop-off locations around the city if you prefer.
  • When driving your car hire in Gaborone, you'll head through multiple changes in driving conditions so be prepared for anything. The city centre is as metropolitan as any other major city, so road conditions are good, and the layout is easy to navigate. You might find that traffic lights tend to not be operational in some places from time to time as maintenance goes on. In this case, treat the intersection as a four-way stop. As soon as you leave the city centre, you'll find dirt roads, potholed roads and tracks that go deep into heavily bushy terrains.
  • There are a few things to consider when thinking about safe driving in Gaborone. When you are in the city, you should look out for people walking on the roads. The city centre roads are not designed for pedestrians, but that doesn't stop them. People with loaded horse-drawn carts and goods to sell travel the streets throughout the day and night. Once you head out into the bush, your main focus must be to go slow; besides the conditions of the rural roads being less maintained, it's not uncommon to come across an elephant or a buck trying to cross the road.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Gaborone?

    Driving a car hire in Gaborone will allow you to explore the majestic bush and all its natural gems as you please, and if this is the focus of your trip then you will definitely need a 4X4 or an SUV for your trip. The terrains you'll be crossing are unpredictable and often not paved at all. Driving out after an African storm means driving through mud and water-logged crevasses all over the place. Then, heading into remote bush locations means you should be prepared for anything. Larger vehicles can handle more aggressive driving conditions, people and fuel and are generally safer in off-road experiences.

  • What’s the speed limit in Gaborone?

    When driving around in your Gaborone car hire, the speed limits are pretty straightforward. Driving in the city or through smaller towns between places means you'll be doing 60 km/h, while on motorways the limit is 120 km/h. You'll see that outside the city there are very few road signs, and it is recommended that you drive slower rather than faster. Roads tend to go from dirt to paved without warning and are often edged by tall thick grass. This makes it hard to see what the potential dangers are or where the road conditions are less favourable, so keeping a safe following distance and going slow is your best bet.

  • Where are the best places to park in Gaborone?

    You'll find parking in your car hire in Gaborone can be tricky depending on where you are. Most of the hotels offer free parking with your accommodation which is a good option. If you are looking to park in the city, you'll find space in shopping centre car parks and large business parking areas. On-street parking is available but is mostly chargeable. You'll see parking attendants walking around with mobile pay machines in the city centre and they will charge you per hour to park on the street.
