Gaborone Seretse Khama International (GBE) Airport

Gaborone Seretse Khama International GBE Airport Overview

Gaborone Seretse Khama International Airport GBE is Botswana's primary airport and a major gateway to international tourism. The Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana is the Airport's operator. 
Botswana can be broken down into six separate regions, each of which is a popular tourist destination: the Southern Region, the Moremi and Okavango Region, the Chobe Region, the Kgalagadi Region, the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans Region, and the Eastern and Central Region.

GBE Airport is located 15 km north of Gaborone, the capital city of Botswana, in the center of southern Africa (Location coordinates: 24 32.21 S 025 55.08 E).
With 4,000 meter long runway, Gaborone Seretse Khama Airport is served by Air Botswana (tel. +267 395  2812) offering scheduled domestic flights from Gaborone to Francistown, Harare, Johannesburg, Kasane & Maun. Currently Air Botswana and South African Airways Express Charter Operators offer domestic connections as well as flights to South Africa and Zimbabwe. Charter operators are KASAC, NAC, and Flying Mission serve the Southern Africa region. South African Express (tel. 309 5740) flies both to Cape Town & Johannesburg.

Traveler Tips:
1. Travelers from North America via Johannesburg Airport should opt instead for Maun Airport farther to the North, which offers a better connection.
