Manyana, 50km southwest of Gaborone, is famous for its Zimbabwean-style rock art, which dates back over 2000 years and feature paintings of three giraffes, an elephant and several antelope. The site is located on the southern extreme of an 8m-high rock overhang about 500m north of the village. Because the site is hard to find, it’s a good idea to hire a local from the village to act as a guide.
Before leaving the area, it’s also worth visiting Dimawe Hill, an important historical site where several groups of warriors under Chief Sechele I halted the invading forces of the Boers from South Africa in 1852. The ruins are scattered around the granite hills, not far from the roadside about 5km before Manyana. Nothing is signposted, but it’s a pleasant place to wander around.
