The route takes us into rural Botswana about fifty kilometres to the north of Gaborone. We pass through two villages, Oodi and Mochudi. At Lentswe la Oodi weavers you have an opportunity to visit the workshop and talk to the village women weaving the tapestries which depict village life. Mochudi, home of the Bakgatla people, is now well known as the birth place of Mma Ramotswe the ‘First Lady Detective’. We drive up into the hills to the Phuthadikobo Museum. As well as the historic displays the building houses a screen printing workshop and a good gift shop. The displays include old photos and artefacts which together show social history and the changes in African village life. The panoramic views from the museum are quite spectacular and we pause to take refreshments in these peaceful surroundings. Those wishing to stretch their legs can take a short walk down the hill to the village ‘Kgotla’.
