Botswana announces new project at World Heritage Site in June

Tsodilo Hills is an important religious and spiritual site for the San people. The Hills provide evidence to the historical lives of the Basarwa/San people. They house the first paintings in the country, which define the history of Botswana and Southern Africa, most particularly the history of the San. They are also a home to a wide range of birds, plant species and wild animals.

Volunteers will help with expansion of service roads to the hills and the Museum, re-establishment of trails and footpaths from the museum to the hills, as well as hold community gatherings in the evenings, community games and use the platform to sensitize the communities on the importance of culture and history preservation; and how they can benefit from the tourists who would visit these tourist attraction sites in the country. We plan to form a voluntary/self-help group in Tsodilo, which will assist in maintaining the site trails and the general site. We plan to engage in litter picking and erection of garbage bins in the surrounding, at certain stops, for collection of litter.
