While I always love driving past the 3 chiefs it not exactly a days outing. Great bit of Botswana history. Would be nice if they just had a little more to do

When you visit Gaborone make sure you pass here. Very quite during our visit on a Sunday. There are some places to sit and clean toilets.

Just a nice place for relaxation and enjoy the other side of the city. A place for family to relax, learn a bit about the country's history, and have a quiet moment away from the busy life of the city.

There was a young gentleman by the name of Onthusitse who explained the history of the country and the founding fathers. Very knowledgable! I thoroughly enjoyed it

We popped in here for a quick look. Cool statues and some good info around the side. We didn't have enough time for a good read.

I was recommended by the hotel reception to go and check the Three Chiefs Monument, and I was happy I did. This being my first time in Botswana, and not having too much knowledge of the country, it was a very informative and useful visit.
