Gaborone property for sale
Located in the thriving cultural and administrative capital of the most stable country in Africa, Gaborone property is a unique investment.
Gaborone, or "Gabs" as it’s sometimes called, is located on the Notwane River between the Kgale and Oodi hills, just 15 kilometres from the border of South Africa. It’s home to roughly a tenth of the country’s population and is Botswana’s economic hub. Gaborone is home to the Botswana Stock Exchange, and has the distinction of being the home base for the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
As well as commercial hustle and bustle, Gaborone offers pleasant, secluded neighbourhoods with a variety of homes and apartments available to discerning buyers. It also provides almost unparalleled opportunities for investors, with the potential for massive growth in the commercial, retail, leisure and residential markets.
Gaborone real estate owners enjoy low crime, high financial and political security, access to good employment opportunities and attractive living conditions. This makes Gaborone one of the fastest-developing real estate markets in southern Africa.
It’s worth remembering that Gaborone isn’t only the economic capital of Botswana, but also its main cultural capital. Among the main attractions for Gaborone home owners are the:
Gaborone National Museum and Art Gallery
If you have a Gaborone property, you’ll want to visit the National Museum and Art Gallery. First opened in 1968, it includes a fascinating selection of traditional crafts and original paintings by Botswana’s top artists. Of educational interest, it also features a unique exhibit on the San people, or “Bushmen.”
Gaborone National Botanical Garden
Gaborone’s botanical garden spans 3.6 hectares, and conserves many of Botswana’s indigenous plant species. The garden is in keeping with Botswana’s emphasis on conservation of the country’s many natural resources - and it’s a welcome refuge from bustling city life.
