Geography and History

Serowe is an important part of Botswana’s history because the country's first president, Sir Seretse Khama was born in Serowe. The name `Serowe` comes from an edible Kalahari plant, `Serowa`. During the days of the Bechuanaland protectorate (1885 onwards), it was a point of settlement for European missionaries and traders. Still standing near the dirt trail once used by early travellers are two giant leadwood trees, which were used as road markers. Serowe is the birthplace of the country’s founding father and first president, Sir Seretse Khama.
