Belongs to the area and Botswana history. The road is bumpy and needs slow drives. The guides are well coached and explained a lot, asked all questions very professional. Midcut hiking shoes are needed, sun protection and hat 🧢 are recommended. Lunchtime isn‘t such busy,...More

This is a magic place to be. Just the fact of these hills in an otherwise completely flat landscape. The rockpaintings are very impressing. We made a tour around sunset which was really nice, if you have a torch as we did. We climbed the...More

Tsodilo used to be one of my favorite spots as a child. You had free reign of the entire place. As kids we would climb up and crawl through everything. These days however it's a different story. Camping used to be free, which was great...More

The guided tour along the Rhino path included hundreds of original hand painted pictures of the local African wildlife on the rock faces. Our guide took us up to the upper portion of the Female Hill and pointed out where the ancient locals lived.

It was hot, very hot, so we didn't do too much of the walking tour and one of the best bits was actually the drive there and seeing all the wildlife and giving lifts to a few locals who couldn't have been more appreciative.

In the camping at night pierce the wheels.We stood alone, there were no other cars. The territory is fenced, but the place is not safe.

This World Heritage Site is a sacred place for the San people and the rock art is amazing. We followed the Rhino Trail which is mostly flat with just one small area of rocks to climb over. Anyone would be able to see some of...More

The Tsodilo Hills is a unique place and a Unesco World Heritage Site. It holds a lot of promise, but I don't think the guides are sufficiently trained to add real value to what could be a very interesting and enjoyable visit. Quite out the...More

Although it was a hot August day and the walk was quite tiring, it was well worth it. The rock art and the colour splendour of the rocks and the mountain was amasing. Our guide was so well informed and patient with us, answering all...More

We were there in October and had no issues with the road. I am afraid I cannot comment on the present situation.

Mmm...good question, I too have my doubts, however the paintings are there. What does make me wonder is that someone also painted pics of penguins and whales.... We were there in high season, and there were no campers, so I... More
