The Tsodilo Hills in Botswana

From Zina Mathambo from The Botswana Safari and Travel Guide

“When you mention Botswana, the first thing that comes to mind to most people is the Okavango Delta and the amazing safaris that you can enjoy in the country. However there is so much more Botswana has to offer.

“Cultural Tourism in particular is one area that will leave you spoiled for choice. Botswana culture is so diverse and every bit of it is worth exploring.

“Among my favourites of "must see" culture-rich places are the Tsodilo Hills. “The Tsodilo Hills which were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002 are rich in Stone Age rock paintings by the ancestors of the San people.

“There are over 4,500 rock paintings recorded, many of which depict humans, animals (both wild and domestic) and geometrical patterns.

“One of the most interesting facts about the Tsodilo Hills is that they are one of the world’s oldest historical places. The hills have evidence of human settlement dating as far back as 100,000 years.

“When you visit the Tsodilo Hills please treat the area with respect and care because they are one of the most historically significant rock art sites in the world and also because they have great religious and spiritual significance to the San people.”
