world pictures Botswana: Gaborone

Colonel Frederick Carrington arrived in Bechuanaland in 1884, during the Second Matabele War. He was told to build a fort and left this earthwork near a crossroads close to the Ngotwane River. It was called Fort Gaborones after Chief Gaborones, who had settled here in 1887 after migrating from South Africa. The chief lived on until 1932, long after Carrington's death in 1913.
