Thamaga est une ville de l'ouest du Botswana qui fait partie du District de Kweneng. Elle est située à une trentaine de kilomètres à l'ouest de Gaborone, la capitale.

La localité comptait 18 117 habitants lors du recensement de 2001[1].

Thamaga abrite un centre artisanal de poterie réputé, attenant à l'église catholique. Ce projet de développement rural a été lancé en 1974 à l'initiative de missionnaires[2].
