Free entry and the man working there is very informative and funny. If in Southern Africa make sure you go to Matsieng and the Cradle of Humankind in South Africa the two sites will you give you a very good background on history. (Dont drive...More
We were on a day out to various attractions, last stop here. No one has been this way in a long time. The road was just a little dirt road and eventually 1.2km before the stop, disintegrated into nothing. Wasn't prepared to ride over that...More
When we arrived at the site the gate was padlocked. We were pleased to find a note fixed to it with the caretaker's mobile phone number. I called him and about 15 minutes later he arrived.
He was a funny, charming and entertaining guy who...More
Drive for about 40 kms from Gaborone on A1 road towards Francistown, you will get a sign board indicating Matsieng Foot prints. It has got few foot and hand prints. This has got permanent water and is believed from where the ancestors came. The markings...More
Lucky, the guide, gave us the historical background of the rocks and the site. The footprints on the rocks take one back in time. Interesting part of History that one is seldom exposed to.
Enjoyed listening to the stories.
Not really impressive but definitely in a folksie way. The guide we had was full of stories and anecdotes, all very interesting. The footprints themselves are interesting in that no one seems to know exactly how old they are or even who did them. Very...More
Seeing giant footprints on a rock that the guide said were the giant Matsieng's took me down memory lane to my childhood. the guide retold the stories I have heard about Matsieng as a child and shared the cultural importance of the area for the...More
One of the places I enjoyed the best while on my holiday in Gaborone. Mostly thanks to the guide Lucky, who was very knowledgeable about the geology and the myths surrounding this famous site, said to be where the first man emerged from and where...More
Interesting tales from the local folks. The guide was very knowledgeable about the place and its history. Worth a visit.
Downside is that it is not easily accessible, sign boards have apparently been removed due to roadworks.
Filled with interesting tales and evidentiary footprints etc. The tour guide is knowledgeable and very entertaining.
Directions to the place not well marked but the people are very friendly and helpful with directions.
Well worth the visit nonetheless!
