Directions to Khami Ruins
Some interesting artefacts were extracted by archaeologists such as ivory charms, copper items, rulers, ornate clay pots and so forth which have helped shed light on how the society lived. It seems there was a distinct separation which was class-based and the Chief’s dwelling was on the Hill section of the compound (Hill Ruin). There are several rock-art sites located in the Khami area, these probably predate the community which put up the walls.
The ruins cover a total area of around 108 hectares. It is now unpopulated and so much of the land is home to several species of birds, snakes, mammals, and insects. Some common birds include – lilac breasted roller, African fish eagle, African grey hornbill etc. Animals include –kudu, vervet monkeys, steenbok, Rock hyrax, leopard tortoise etc. There is a small museum at the site which has exhibits depicting how the inhabitants of the area made their living, it also shows the vegetable and animal profile of the area. There is much to learn and marvel when one visits Khami.
