Southern Africa Travel Guide

Tsodilo Hills


Country: Botswana
About 4500 ancient rock paintings have been found here, in just 10 square kilometres. The sites, at 40 km from the town of Shakawe, can only be accessed by a dirt road. The most “decorated” site is the Laurens van der Post panel. The sites are of great spiritual importance to the San hunters. It is believed that in one of the hills the ancient tribe buried their dead in caves. Tsodilo Hills consist of four separate hills. The highest is called the “Male”, the second highest “Female”, the third “child” and the fourth knoll doesn’t carry a nickname. But size doesn’t always matter. If you want to see rock art, you will have to visit the “female” hill. Paintings include depictions of lion, rhinos and a whale. It is best to visit the area with a local, well-informed guide. He or she will give you great insight into the spiritual world of the San.
