Tropic Of Capricorn in Botswana

The Tropic Of Capricorn - Botswana
This might not be a big deal for many, but it is for me. One of the five imaginary latitude lines on earth cuts through my country, Botswana, and that’s The Tropic of Capricorn.
Why is it such a big deal?
The tropic of Capricorn is the circle of latitude that contains the sub-solar point on the Southern Solstice. In this area, the sun can be directly overhead because it’s deemed to be the highest point in the Southern Hemisphere where the sun hits.

The Three Dikgosi Monument - Gaborone Botswana

08:56




Standing at 18ft tall, the BRONZE made statue rep the Three Chiefs who played a significant role in what Botswana is today. Khama III of the Bangwato, Sebele I of the Bakwena and Bathoen I of the Bangwaketse were the three chiefs that flew to England in 1895 to go and plead with the Queen to hold on the Protectorate which was being threatened by Cecil John Rhode's leadership.

Though these three men’s decision was deemed controversial by many, their persistence and endurance bore fruits to the nation hence, they are still celebrated to date. THE THREE DIKGOSI MONUMENT celebrates them.
