Like Australia’s Ayers Rock, the Tsodilo Hills rise abruptly from a rippled, ocean-like expanse of desert in Northern Botswana. The hills are a place of myth and legend, and of enormous spiritual significance for the San Bushmen living in the area. It’s thought that hills were first visited by the Bushmen almost 100,000 years ago and around 2,750 individual outline-style rock paintings have been discovered at 200 sites, as well as rare artefacts and hunting tools dating back 20,000 years.
This two-day mobile safari is your chance to discover this poignant and mesmerising part of Botswana. When you visit Tsodilo, come with your imagination alert and your senses prepared. This isn’t a merely a safari to see rock art, and wonder what it may mean, but a visit to a mysterious and unspoiled world, perfectly preserved in the pages of time, and an enchanting dip into one of the continent’s oldest cultures.
NB Please note that the Tsodilo Hills itinerary is only available as a two-night add-on to the Bushmen of the Far Western Kalahari mobile safari.
