Domboshaba, Botswana

Domboshaba ruins is a cultural and heritage site in Botswana originally occupied towards the end of the Great Zimbabwe period (1250–1450 AD). The site is a respected place for the people living in the region and it is believed that the chief lived on the top of the hill together with his helpers or assistants.

The phrase Dombo means hill and the word Shaba means red. Domboshaba is also called the Luswingo used to be the settlement of the Great chief of that time. The ruins are similar to the Mwenemotapa. The chief's wife settled below the hill. Domboshaba has a well called the Mantenge Well which never dries up and the well is 7 metres deep and is situated in the rock.
