Botswana's Department of Wildlife and National Parks just informed the public that the popular Gaborone Game Reserve in Gaborone will be closed to the public between 16 - 27 October 2017. This is due to the fact that the facility will be used for interviews during the said period. The Gaborone Game Reserve will be open again from 28 October 2017 for business and leisure.
The Gaborone Game Reserve is located on the western side of Gaborone about 1km east of the Broadhurst Mall. It covers an area of only 5km², but is third busiest game reserve in Botswana. Gaborone Game Reserve is home to wildebeest, elands, gemsboks, kudus, ostriches and warthogs as well as to a particularly plentiful birdlife. All roads in the reserve are accessible by two-wheel drives (2WD).
