How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
Expatriates will generally find that getting involved in their local community is very rewarding. There are groups that expats can join, however, such as The American Society, The International Women's Club and Bird Life International. There is also a Facebook group "The Gaborone Grapevine."
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
Many people meet and network through the local churches and arrange fundraisers and golf days. Families often also network through their children's schools, get involved in fundraising and sporting events, and other activities. Joining a sports club or cultural interest club is another good way of meeting new people, and attending an international cricket or rugby match is sure to get you talking to the people around you. You can also join clubs like Bird life International.
Where can I meet other singles in this city?

Are there any unique networking opportunities for accompanying partners?
