Matsieng Footprints

Botswana

Further north on the main road, just after the village of Rasesa, this National Monument consists of a slab of sandstone pierced by two deep holes, as well as engravings. Legend says that the first ancestor of the Botswana, Matsieng – a giant, one-legged man, climbed out of one hole, followed by his people, their domestic animals, and wildlife.

The engravings – now very faint – were probably made by Khoe herders, and date to the beginning of the second millennium.
