A very special place. Very different of the rest of the Okavango region. Well worth a visit. The guide was pleasant and informative. Without him we would have missed most of the art. Road not great.

Amazing place! So much history and so beautiful at the same time. The paintings are incredible. Our guide Alec was very knowledgeable and told us many interesting stories about the hills, Sun people etc. We really enjoyed our afternoon there. Really worth to visit.

We booked 7 days camping at Tsodilo Hills Community campsite as all other sites were fully booked. The plan was to use this as a base camp from where we can explore the upper Western part of Botswana. They charged a ridiculous price of 140 Pula per person per day, which is around R 190 South African Rand. On arrival,... More

Very interesting landscape. Amazing amount of rock art. Be prepared for some strenous walking. I advise hiring a knowledgable guide.

Went with a guide from our lodge but needed to go with a local guide assigned there.....he was a San Bushman having grown up on the mt. He offered a great tour and interpretation of the paintings. So glad we went.

Some of the ancient cave paintings are so clear and bright it's hard to believe their age. Local guide was informative. The geology of the area is also very impressive.

This world heritage site has been handed over to the local community who rakes in over 1 million Dollars a year and treats their tourists in the most disgraceful manner. While the site itself is awesome, the campsite (only accommodation for miles) has been utterly abandoned by this greedy community. The ablutions have never been cleaned, but how would one... More
