A lot of things are said about the mysterious Zu/’hoasi Bushmen of Botswana’s Kalahari Desert; that they are a separate species, as no man could possibly live in such a harsh environment; that they can change themselves into animals; that they have an extrasensory perception of the environment. Most of this is pure folklore, and this three-day cultural safari, deep into the Western Kalahari, offers a fascinating insight into one of the most unique cultures in the world.
For many years, it has been impossible to offer such a trip due to the threat of exploitation. Now, with the help of a community project, the traditional Bushmen experience is a dignified and culturally-sensitive one. You’ll meet the community elders, walk with the young Bushmen through the desert, and have the rare opportunity to witness a ‘trance dance.’ If you have a keen interest in the world’s civilisations, this cultural expedition is a truly unmissable experience.
