A prominent landmark on the western edge of the capital city of Gaborone, Kgale Hill's elevation offers spectacular views of the city and dam. There are three paths to reach the top of the hill; the vertical Rusty's Route, the longer Transfeldt Trail and the walk across the rolling saddle to Cross Kopje; all of which take less than an hour. While walking up the hill visitors may even spot one of the black eagles that nest in the cliff-face or see the resident baboon troop playing on the rocks. The hill is very popular amongst the locals, offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy city.
