SEROWE

Description and history

As the capital of the Bamangwato tribe Serowe has historic significance in Botswana's independence - in the early 1900's the Khama dynasty was established here under Khama III. Sir Seretse Khama, Botswana's first president, was born and raised in Serowe and it was here that the political furore surrounding his marriage to Ruth Williams reached its head - an amazing story of how strong cultural and racial barriers were overcome, told in the book and film "A Marriage of Inconvenience".

Serowe is the regional centre of the Central District, the largest District in Botswana, and has regional offices for some government departments as well as a large hospital situated on the right hand side as you enter the village.
