In the tourist town of Maun is Gaborone’s The Mall with a wide variety of restaurants. Traditional Botswana meals are prepared including a few restaurants that offer international cuisine such as the Beijing Red Lantern Chinese Restaurant where Asian cuisine is readily available. For meat lovers, head to Rodizio along Riverwalk shopping Centre while The Beef Baron Grill and Rib Room at the Grand Pal, Hotel and Casino in Gaborone serves delicious traditional Botswana cuisine.

Some fine steak and grilled ribs are also available. The classy Sports Bar and Restaurant is known for appetizing Western meals while Homey Hilary is the to-go-to spot for vegans. The Curry house serves Indian dishes.

In case you love candlelit dinner, game lodges are the best with Chobe Game Lodge at the Chobe National Park offers the best of this. Tuli Safari Lodge at the Northern Tuli National Park also serves great food.

Drinking joints

Riverwalk Mall Village in Gaborone is your watering hole, literally. Keg and Zebra is a popular bar with a night jam session on Sunday while the Bull and Bush-British style-modelled bar are great for playing pool.
