Unravelling the beauty of Lepokole Hills
Situated at the Eastern village of Bobonong, Lepokole Hills, where the last of the San people took refuge from the encroaching settlement, has a lot to offer in terms of terrific scenic views and ancient San rock art . In addition to rock paintings, Lepokole Hills hold a wealth of other archaelogical treasures from Stone Age tools and ancient pottery to stone walls. Previously, visitors to these hills had to be completely self-sufficient and were required to ask for permission from the Lepokole headman to visit. That is about to change as the Mapanda Conservation Trust is now developing the site for tourism, with a agame fence to be erected as the Trust hopes to re-stock the area with indigenous wildlife.
