San Cultural Trips

Tsodilo Hills is a place you will never forget

A national treasure and the highest point in Botswana, the Tsodilo Hills rise 1,400 metres from the flat desert landscape. Sacred to the San people of Northern Botswana, these mystical and spiritual hills were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 and are adorned with over 2,000 ancient San paintings.

A visit to these hills delivers, however briefly, the essence of an ancient culture: fragile and increasingly threatened in the face of pressure from the Western world. Read more about Tsodilo Hills

Day Trips to Tsodilo Hills

We offer fully-catered and guided day trips to explore the hills, which are easily accessible from Nxamaseri Island Lodge. Savour the ambience and view the paintings in their typically arid Kalahari environment – a world away from the lush greens of the Nxamaseri waterways.
