From Gaborone, daily connections can be made to Maun, the primary starting point for tourists visiting Botswana’s parks and reserves.

Qatar Airways will be utilizing its Airbus A350-900s, some of the newest aircraft in the sky. The aircraft has 36 seats in QSuites Business Class – which features the possibility of double-beds for couples, and privacy panels that can be stowed away – as well as 247 seats in Economy Class.

In addition to Gaborone, Qatar Airways will also be introducing flights to the resort island of Langkawi, Malaysia in October. This year, the rapidly expanding airline has already added Rabat, Morocco; Izmir, Turkey; Mogadishu, Somalia; Malta; Lisbon, Portugal; and Davao the Philippines to its list of more than 160 destinations served.
