Botswana's Department of Wildlife and National Parks has closed the popular Gaborone Game Reserve in Gaborone to the public until further notice. This came about as a result of on-going maintenance of the sewerage lines by the Water Utilities Corporation (WUC), a parastatal organisation wholly owned by the Government of Botswana.
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).
