Hang out with Namibia's San Bushmen
Here among the dust-dry plains of the Kalahari lives the oldest culture in the world – the San. Spending time in their company is an exotic privilege – you may start with learning how these adept hunters go about their business. Nimble-footed and expert, with their distinctive small bows and poison-tipped arrows, their hunt of spring-hare is an exercise in patience, then bursts of agility and speed. Evening brings the community together, with traditional dance and music accompanying food – a magical experience to sit out under the velvet sky of countless stars and to hear the songs of the San, as timeless as the desert and yet gloriously alive.
