The collection of images below were generously supplied by Ian Brooks, son of Donald Maxwell Brooks. Donald was an Officer in the Police Force during the early 1960s prior to Botswana’s independence. Donald spent time in Maun, Mahalapye and Serowe. You visit our Historic Botswana section (select Our Botswana from the menu and select Historic Botswana) to read articles and learn more about these pictures.

The collection of images below were generously supplied by Russell Fowler. After an early career in diamond exploration and mining in Africa with De Beers, Russell spent four years in Botswana prospecting for diamonds deep in the bush in the early 1980s. Russell is now back in the UK, but leads charity programmes deep in Botswana with the Bushmen of the Kalahari, Okavango Delta and Tsodilo Hills. Another charity is Naletsana based in Maun, focussed mainly on Khwai Village.
