The School

Bana Ba Metsi School is located in Northwestern Botswana, near the village of Ngarange, on the eastern side of the Okavango Panhandle, opposite Shakawe, approximately 450 km’s from Maun. Getting there involves crossing the Okavango River by ferry at Mohembo, and proceeding south towards Seronga. This remote setting was determined by the need to remove the students from the environment that contributed to many of the problems they faced and to facilitate their proper rehabilitation. It also enables the staff of the School to impart a sense of environmental responsibility through outdoor activities such as camping, fishing and the reforestation of the area.
