5 day trip from Gaborone??

Jump to last reply

My friend and I are both doctors spending six weeks living in Gaborone, Botswana from the states. We have 5 days off coming up in about a week and a half and are looking to come up with a fun (relatively inexpensive) trip. I have travelled fairly extensively in Botswana so we were hoping to go somewhere abroad-- e.g. Malawi or Mozambique. He is traveling to Namibia in October so that is not an option. I am going to Cape Town in October so that is out as well.

We are VERY open to suggestions as to what would be feasible and interesting in this short period of time. We like interesting towns/culture, animals, not as into beach. Our budget would be to keep the week under $1000 all included, if not cheaper. May not be possible, but if anyone might have an idea I figured the knowledgable folks on Fodors might be able to help us out...!
