Tsodilo Hills

Tsodilo Hills: Our full report

All year

For adventurers, the magical Tsodilo Hills are best reached on a mobile safari. These famous landmarks, rising out of the undulating Kalahari, are one of the great sites for Bushman rock art. Laurens van der Post famously described them as a 'Louvre in the desert' in his book, The Lost World of the Kalahari. This remote location is not for the fainthearted – so Tsodilo remains an intriguing place where visitors are uncommon.

Similar isolation makes both Drotsky's Caves (in the Gcwihaba Hills) and the Aha Hills fascinating; all are destinations for private mobile safaris, but none are usually possible to see on a fly-in trip.
