Easy access for 2 wheel drive (with some clearance) - in the dry months anyway. A great opportunity to camp near the hills (free of charge!) When you arrive open the gate to the reserve yourself and follow signs to "museum" (about10 min drive). That is where the main campsite is.

A guided walk is P100 - It seemed to be compulsory to take a guide.

If passing near Shakawe - well worth the diversion.

If travelling on own beware of poor exit signage.We took the wrong road out and ended up stuck in deep sand even with our Honda CRV. By pure luck we heard a party of rangers and they managed to manoeuvre us out.

“Its not just about the animals.”

We travelled to the Tsodilo Hills from Maun with Afrika Calls Cultural Safaris, [--] While we all know that Botswana is the safari destination, a trip to the hills provides an totally different experience and a chance to get to know the poeple of Botswana rather than the wildlife. At the hills you can easily access fantasic ancient rock art and also gain some height which is a rare thing in Bostwana. There is a visitors centre which gives real insight into the area. Although the facilities at the Hills are basic, we travelled with Afrika Calls and the mobile safari experience they provided us with was fantastic. Our Guide transport and food were all brilliant. Our guide organised a local guide to show us the rock art and access to the San village, both of which added to the experience. If this type of add on to your safari appeals we would recommend this Unesco Site and Afrika Calls, the company that got us there. You could go alone but you would really need 4WD and you would need to bring all your supplies - although there are clean loos and showers.
