Travellers can familiarise themselves with the imposing Kalahari Desert and intricate formation of the Okavango Delta, and are encouraged to enjoy one of the many safaris and game drives on offer, which show off the Big 5 in a natural environment, as well as a host of indigenous birds and lush vegetation. Botswana is steeped in deep history and is a land blessed with incredible cultural diversity, providing travellers with fascination and unforgettable experiences.

35km west of Gabarone lies the village of Manayana, where dazzling rock paintings are located in an area of several overhanging rocks at the base of the Kolobeng Hill. Historians believe that the San people created the rock paintings and that Manayana could have been a place of ritual for them because of the nearby Kolobeng River. Visitors will marvel at the works of art that give a deep insight not only into the area but also into the customs and traditions of the San people. The rock pictures include rhinos, gemsbok, antelope, and a group of giraffes as well as human geometric shapes. Other artifacts have been found near Manayana, estimated to be much older than the rock paintings.
