Botai (Kazakh: Ботай) is a village in Aiyrtau District, North Kazakhstan Region, Kazakhstan. Its KATO code is 593246200.[1]

The village gives its name to a nearby archaeological site, the type site of the Botai culture, which dates to the Eneolithic period (c. 3500 BCE) and has produced some of the earliest evidence for the domestication of the horse.[2]
