Culture of Botswana


Botswana doesn’t have much of a literary tradition; all that survives are ancient myths and poetry written in praise. Indigenous languages only started being written when Christian missionaries arrived in Botswana in the late 19th century. Indigenous tribal rituals are still being practiced today with cults holding their sway.


However, tribal rituals of birth, death, wedding and initiation have been adapted to the Christian way in many places. The tribal people of San Folklore tell legends of great tricksters and demons, and will educate you on matters of the supernatural world.

The people of Botswana are natural artists and this is evident in their poetry, fabrics and tools.
