Tsodilo Hills – Mountain of the Gods

We make a brief stop at the famous Baines’ Baobabs – mighty Baobab trees in the middle of one of Botswana’s pans (dry lake). The site is spectacular and peaceful, and we share it with a lone elephant who does not like the Jeep too much.

The Tsodilo Hills, in the extreme North West of Botswana, is a UNESCO world heritage site where two small rocky mountains rise up out of the flat barren landscape. An obvious meeting point for thousands of years, the mountains are covered in rock art and ancient artifacts.

The landscape is rugged and beautiful

We arrive early in the morning and tour the Rhino Trail with an extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide. The rock art is very well preserved and beautiful, and hearing stories of the old days is moving.
