Introduction

Tshabong is a town in the Kalahari region of Botswana. Tsabong has a range of shops, including a Barclays bank with foreign exchange, pharmacy and primary hospital. Tsabong is the capital of Kgalagadi District. In global terms though, it’s a small village, with a population of about nine thousand. It is situated on a massive pan. Historic buildings include the original wells, the first jail, District Commissioner and Station Commander's houses in the district (colonial era). There are a number of middle stone age sites in the area, but very little has been written about the history of the village. It also boasts an unsealed airstrip with the second oldest meteorological station in Botswana.

Post

BotswanaPost is the national postal service of Botswana. It is operating more than 100 post offices and 70 agencies throughout the country and is fairly reliable, albeit not overly fast. All post has to go overland through Gaborone first and international mail by plane might go via Johannesburg, so count on several weeks for your postcard or letter to be delivered to places in Europe or North America. You can use them for parcels as well, though faster and more expensive services are available by companies like TNT, UPS or DHL.
