Namibia, AFRICA

The Bushmen are still well known for being masters in surviving in dry environments as the Kalahari and the Namib Deserts of Namibia. Even today, some groups still depend on a large extend on hunting and gathering in these areas.

The greatest and hardest hunting technic ever been seen, done by one man, is to track and run down the Great Kudu Antelope in midday African heat. This persistance hunt is an astonishing achievement by a single human hunter and shows what these Kalahari Bushmen are really made of. We will be traveling through their beautiful Namibia landscape, where they have lived for about 65,000 years. We will listen and learn when our bushman/guide interprets what kind of a story the tracks on the ground tells us. They will show us all the different useful plants, bushfood and how to find water.

The Bushmen community on the western edge of the great Kalahari is home to the only historic living village in Namibia where the ancient San culture is alive in genuine tradition. They specialize in teaching their skills, including hunting, gathering, singing, dancing, gaming and traditional healing, as well as their traditional crafts. We will visit these extraordinary people and stay with them for several days in their historic village. We will also walk with them into the wild in order to have a first-hand experience of their culture, which is also part of our own Stone Age history in the evolution of mankind.

This is not a safari… This a a bushcraft expedition!
