Tsodilo Hills

The Tsodilo Hills is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (WHS) consisting of rock art, rock shelters, depressions and caves. It gained its WHS listing in 2001 because of its unique religious and spiritual significance to local people as well as its unique record of human settlement over the many millennia.

UNESCO estimates that there are over 4500 rock paintings at the sites. The site consists of a few main hills known as the child hill, the female hill and the male hill. These hills are of great cultural and spiritual significance of the San of Kalahari.

Aha Hills

Aha Hills is an isolated untouched wilderness area that straddles the western boarder of Namibia. They form a 24.500-hectare dolomite, limestone, and marble plateau that are 700 million years old.

Savuti

Savuti is much known for its predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and even African wild dogs. The Savuti channel started flowing again after being dry for the last 30 years. The emergence of water charged the landscape as well as accommodating different species which historically have not been able to survive in the rather arid plains of Savuti. This exciting event has allowed large breeding herds of elephants as well as buffalo to visit the area.
