Public transport within Gaborone is somewhat limited. Licensed
taxis are identified by their number plates, which have a blue
background. These are usually shared and carry up to five
passengers. Minibus taxis are also available and usually travel a
specific route, and pass through the station or mall. These are
easily hailed and passengers usually tell the driver to stop when
they want to get off. There are also train services between
Gaborone and Francistown and Gaborone and Lobatse. Four-wheel drive
vehicles are a popular choice for exploring areas outside of the
city and Gaborone has several reputable car rental agencies.
Gaborone's roads are tarred and usually in good condition, but
drivers have to be on the look out for stray animals.
