Hilton Worldwide has signed a management agreement for the mid-market Hilton Garden Inn Gaborone, which is expected to open in 2017.
The hotel will be 13km from Gaborone’s Sir Seretse Khama International Airport.
The 150 guest rooms will offer signature bedding and facilities will include a health club and outdoor swimming pool. Food and beverage options will include an all-day dining restaurant, bar and 24-hour pavilion pantry. Guests will have access to a 24-hour business centre, complimentary WiFi and more than 400 sqm of meeting space.
“With 13 Hilton Garden Inn locations now confirmed across Africa, I am delighted that we have agreed our first hotel in Botswana,” says Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior VP of Development, Europe & Africa for Hilton Worldwide.
Gaborone acts as a gateway to the natural beauty of Botswana, which includes national parks such the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and the Okavango Delta. The country is also famous for its mining industries, including diamonds and coal.
