Full description
See the only rock paintings in the south of Botswana, accompanied by a professional guide who will enlighten you about the history and culture of Botswana.  First stop is the Manyana rock paintings. The paintings are spread over five cliff faces. Images include giraffes, antelopes, human figures and geometric designs, all of which date from between 1100 and 1700AD. They were in all likelihood made by Khoe (click-speaking) cattle herders. Next stop is Kolobeng, the site of David Livingstone’s third and final mission station. Here he built the house and church where he and his wife Mary would work to convert the local Bakwena people to Christianity. Final stop is a ride into a local village to visit the Livingstone Tree.
