The site of David Livingstone’s third and final mission station was Kolobeng, approximately 20 kms west of Gaborone, past Gabane. Here he built the house and church. The picture above is showing a site of David Livingstone’s final mission, Kolobeng. At  22, this is where Kolobeng and his wife Mary would work to convert the local Bakwena to Christianity.

Kolobeng is gazetted as a National Monument, and you can only gain entry through the custodian.
