Description and history

Situated 300km south-west of Maun and just north of the Trans-Kalahari highway, which runs from Lobatse in Botswana to Walvis Bay in Namibia, this small town is sometimes referred to as the 'Capital of the Kalahari'. This is the administrative centre of Ghanzi district which covers a vast area of cattle ranches and farmland in the west of Botswana.


Although Ghanzi is close to the Trans-Kalahari highway it only has a few shops, a bank (Barclays) and only one filling station (Shell). Ghanzi does however boast both Spar and Shoprite supermarkets. There is also a good butchery (Artok butchery) near the centre next to Spar.

Ghanzi has a few lodges that focus on cultural tourism as well as wildlife - here you will experience the fascinating world of the San (bushmen) as they show you how they forage, hunt and find water in this harsh environment.
