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. No matter if you visit us for business or pleasure, if you stay for a month or just stop over for a night on your way into Botswana, we would love to welcome you home. It will be our pleasure to have you as our guest.

The food was ordinary, and the service at Botswana standard. The kitchen need to improve significantly if it wants to be highly regarded. The dining room was not full, which was also indicative.

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.
