A cultural and wildlife safari experience that includes spending time with the Bushmen, learning about tracking and the secrets of Botswana’s the Kalahari Desert.
Getting out of a vehicle and out on foot automatically changes your perspective of Africa. Going one step further and walking in the footsteps of people who call this wilderness home, is undoubtedly one of the richest and most pleasurably surprising experiences you could hope to have. Interaction with the Bushmen is handled respectfully, and most take a real interest in demonstrating their expertise.
Those who have had the rare privilege of tracking an animal with the San hunters tell how they can lope for hours, beating rhythmical pace upon their bare thighs with a short stick. Their understanding of the animal and formidable mental agility enables them to anticipate its movements and follow footprints over rocky ground even when none are visible. Impressive endurance athletes, they have the capacity to run their prey to exhaustion, whereupon they employ a well-aimed poison-tipped arrow to swiftly finish the job.
We work with a selected handful of responsible operators who have partnered with the Bushmen in conservation projects.
