NEARBY FACILITIES

The North East District of Botswana has a rich history. Some Middle and Late Stone Age tools have been found in the area and the rock paintings tell us stories about people's lives during these times.

The paintings also tell us a lot about the animals that were abundant in the area and the early inhabitant's hunting and gathering methods. In about 200 AD, farmers brought in livestock, crops, iron tools and pottery. They built more permanent homes out of poles and clay. There are about 25 Early Iron Age sites in the North East District. Historical places of interest are visited on some of our day trips into the surrounding areas.
