Bushmen Paintings and Baobab Trees

Head out into the bush and find a collection of paintings that will take your breath away. These works by the San Bushmen are thought to be more than 1,500 years old. Then continue on to the amazing baobab grove, a cathedral-like cluster of 13 giant trees that are almost as old as the paintings.

The Boma

Gather round the campfire and exchange stories of your day’s adventures, much as villagers do throughout Botswana. Flames flicker and lamps glow as drinks are served. A choir sings traditional songs and invites you to a buffet of African specialities. The evening often ends with everyone dancing, to rhythms handed down through generations.
