Matsieng is one of the best known and most important cultural sites in all of Africa. Located just northeast of Gaborone, Matsieng is believed by the people of Botswana to be the birthplace of humankind. The site includes 117 engravings in rock faces, which according to folklore, depict the markings of Matsieng, the Great Hunter. The engraved petroglyph footprints date back between 3,000 and 10,000 years.
