Botswana’s journey to independence is fascinating to learn about during a trip to Gaborone. Three tribal chiefs (known as ‘dikgosi’) made a great trip to Great Britain to request the Queen’s permission to become an independent country. This historical statue is something that is sure to appeal to everyone interested in learning a bit about Botswana and its history.
