Geography and History

Moshupa is one of the larger towns in the Southern District of Botswana. The people of Moshupa are called the Bakgatla-ba-ga Mmanaana, and they arrived to the region from the Transvaal region in South Africa during the eighteenth century. Moshupa is known for its distinctive and gigantic mountain outcrops which often leave visitors wondering why they are so balanced on top of each other. Even the villagers themselves wonder why they do not fall. They are believed to fall only when the village chief is dying, as a sign. The tribal chief of Moshupa is Kgosi Kgabosetso Mosielele.

The Mosope River is a natural watercourse in Botswana, passing through Moshupa. The Mosope River joins the Kolobeng River to form Metsimotlhaba which joins Notwane River around Mochudi, and continues to the Limpopo River. The villagers in Moshupa avoid crossing the Mosope River, especially at night where the river leaves the Kgosing mountain for fear of the Kgwanyape, which is a dragon believed to live in the Mosope River.
