The indigenous people of Southern Africa are referred to as the Bushmen. These people were traditionally hunter-gatherers, part of the Khoisan group and are related to the traditionally pastoral Khoikhoi.
There is a significant linguistic difference between the northern Bushmen living between Okavango (Botswana) and Etosha (Namibia), extending into southern Angola on the one hand and the southern group in the central Kalahari, who are the last remnant of the extensive autochthonous San of South Africa.
The Bushmen have provided a wealth of information for the fields of anthropology and genetics, even as their lifestyles changed. Join us for an ancient dance ritual performed around a campfire by the San and a morning walk with the San as they display their survival skills that have been passed on from generation.
