Our Community

The Nxamaseri area has strong traditional links to the San people of Botswana – in fact ‘Nxamaseri’ is the San word used to describe ‘the sound the wind makes when it blows through the reeds.’ The ancient course of the Nxamaseri channel flowed past the mystical Tsodilo Hills, a site sacred to the San people, and as a result the Nxamaseri community has a marked San influence in its culture and appearance.

Nxamaseri Island Lodge has a curio shop selling handcrafts and artefacts made by the local communities, proceeds of which go to community development projects.
