Botswana is where the white-hot Kalahari Desert meets the wild Okavango River delta in an explosion of green that shelters and feeds some of the continent's most prolific wildlife. And hidden in the searing sand is one of the world's richest sources of diamonds.Sun International's luxury Hotel, Casino and Conference Centre in Botswana is another glittering diamond. The Gaborone Sun located in the capital City of Gaborone, offers world travellers and business people a sophisticated conference centre and meeting place with the added advantage of a premium casino.Travellers are drawn by the promise of high adventure; to a place that exposes all who visit the extremes of the African interior. Africa is the most alluring continent on earth and Botswana is the sorcerer.The Gaborone Sun's hotel rooms provide a home-from-home feel where you can relax or catch up quietly on some after hours work. The beautiful rooms in their soft African-hued furnishings offer a serene escape from the bustle of the boardroom or the excitement of the casino.The hotel dates back to the seventies and has been extensively refurbished and refined. Accommodation includes a total of 196 rooms including 1 Standard paraplegic room, 1 luxury paraplegic room, a palatial Presidential Suite, 3 suites, 38 luxury rooms and 152 Executive Rooms.Take a tour of our property and see what we can offer you.

Spend the New Year Eve there, not bad, typical hotel food, definitely the old owners were more dedicated regarding food, welcome, service, etc. Low quality speakers on the music side were humming all the time, you could not hear the music payed.

Used to be a good hotel once. Now it is worth a miss. The food, the stay, the rooms are all on the way down.

Have stayed at the Gaborone Sun many, many times - a real oasis of an hotel. Many fond memories shared with my children and family. Brilliant buffet for evening meal and breakfast, can not fault the service. Highly recommend to all travellers to the capital.
