Majojo
Majojo
Majojo is a small hill spread to the west of the highway. The ruins are situated on the eastern end of Majojo Hill. They were a Muzinda, the residence of a chief or "Kgosi", between 1300-1650AD. The walls are considered an extension of the Great Zimbabwe tradition. This stretches from the High Plateau of Zimbabwe into the Northern Province of South Africa. Majojo Monument is one of the 105 known Zimbabwean Tradition elites in eastern Botswana, stretching from Nkange and Sua Pan to the Limpopo river. There are more than 550 known stonewalls in southern Africa.Majojo ruins constitute a sacred place for contemporary local communities. They are considered a spiritual home for their ancestors. Religious healing ceremonies and offerings are conducted at the site. As a result, there are clay pots, some candles and coins placed in the enclosure. In addition to their connection with religious activities, the architectural patterns of Majojo stonewalls bears testimony to the great technological, economic and political success of African civilizations prior to the advent of colonialism.

Driving Directions:
