Kgale Hill (Setswana for “The Place that Dried Up) is a hill located in Gaborone, Botswana. Nicknamed “The Sleeping Giant”, Kgale Hill reaches a summit elevation of 1,287 metres (4,222 ft) above sea level. The hill used to be home to a television repeater and is now a tourist destination.
Climbing and recreation
Hikers have a choice of three trails to climb to the peak. During the one-hour walk to the top, hikers can usually see troops of baboons.
The hill is the site of the PPC King of the Hill race, a collaboration between PPC Botswana and the Gaborone Runners Club. The 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) race begins at the PPC Botswana office, travels past Game City Mall, winds around the Kgale Quarry, climbs up the hill, and goes back to the PPC Botswana office.
